Best of the Net

The Best of the Net Web site is an anthology of sites from the Internet chosen by the team of educators and multimedia specialists at EXCITE and Houghton Mifflin. The sites were selected for their outstanding science content for grades 3 to 8.

The Best of the Net also:

  • provides access to quality Internet resources;
  • introduces novice Internet users, in a comfortable and enjoyable way, to using the Web;
  • saves time that would otherwise be spent searching for and downloading worthwhile educational resources; instead, the time can be spent for teaching and learning; and
  • promotes classroom learning by providing editorial commentaries and student activities for each site.
