African

and

posted.

> Judy,
Again, another great suggestion for sites. May I add this one to the list:
http://honolulu.edgate.org/d.pl?url=http://www.42explore.com/index.htm ?
Organized by topics, the area on masks is great, lots of links & projects. I
just found it after setting up a homework page at SchoolNotes.com for next
year!
