The Franklin Institute's Science Action Guide Web site provides educators with a number of provocative activities designed to engage students with science issues that are meaningful in their local communities. The main page is designed as a periodic table that contains links organized by subject and by grade level. Included in these are a water activity called Saving Water Everywhere, geared toward primary students; an energy activity entitled Animating Energy Online for secondary students; and various life science pages. Each lesson contains an overview of the project, instructions for successful completion, links for needed resources, and much more -- all of which help to create a better than average resource that science educators should fully appreciate.
