eMints: eThemes

I've been using Google Reader as a way to get several RSS feeds in one place for easy browsing. I found this on the Librarian's Internet Index. I shared it with a friend via e-mail but decided it was worth sending to my blog too. It has links to a vast amount of information. When exploring Africa, I was impressed that suggestions also let you know if the linked site also contained advertisements.

eMints: eThemes: "'eThemes is an extensive database of content-rich, age-appropriate resources organized around specific themes. These resources are created for educators to use in their classrooms.' Search or browse 'more than 1,000 eThemes ... on topics ranging from Africa to Yellowstone National Park.' A service of the eMints National Center and maintained by University of Missouri-Columbia College of Education staff and graduate students from the School of Information Science and Learning Technologies."
