The material was (dare I say it?) kind of boring. Just because there are illustrations, doesn't mean that children will enjoy or learn from it. It is of obvious importance that we introduce children to such topics at a young age, but there are better ways to accomplish this.

Great source of information--enough to answer all a student's questions but not so much as to get bogged down.  Explains the topic in a clear and concise manner.  Nice illustrations, as well.

I really enjoyed going over the material on this website, the illustrations and information where very kight and not too in depth which might be too much for younger children.  This type of material needs to be taught to children in elementry to give them a better understanding of science and its importance.
