Whale Rescue
Have you ever met a whale up close? Well, some kids did last year when they helped a beached baby Gray Whale in California. Meet J.J., the tough little whale who survived, at http://library.thinkquest.org/4397. J.J. may be a baby, but a baby whale is BIG! Learn all about how much milk it took to feed J.J. and what the scientists at SeaWorld did to help their flippered friend survive. There's even a real movie of a visit to SeaWorld, and you can link up to the latest news on how J.J. is doing right now. Immerse yourself in this whale of a site: Learn about whale history, play whale games and even submit your own whale poetry and art.

Mix 'n' Match The beat goes on at SS7X7, the Internet's premier master mixing Web site. You'll merge with other wired musicians in an ensemble of jungle, jazz, house and techno. Jam to your favorite sounds at www.ss7x7.com/ html/ start.html to find out whether or not you were born to mix. Through looping audio, drumming patterns and random sequences, you'll have the opportunity to blend various sounds into what could be the next big hit. The site features music from international acts and producers. You can record the new sounds you make, and if you want to make a long-term contribution to SS7X7, you can even e-mail the site your own music. Get ready to spin, sample, rap and dance. It's time to play that funky music! (This site is no longer available.)

Icky and Sticky
It's time to get slimed! Slither out to http://yucky.discovery.com and join Wendell the Worm and his human sidekick Dora as they explore the living sciences through cockroaches, earth worms and the mysterious human body. From sneezing and snoring to bug bites, this site covers everything that's gross and yucky. The site has plenty of sounds, videos and games to keep you scurrying about, and you can send gross e-cards to your friends online, or hang out with Ralph the Roach at Bug World.

Ask Amy
Dear Amy: Our family is relocating to Stockton, CA. What are your suggestions for helping my two older daughters make the transition?--Carla, Oakland, CA
Dear Carla: Every summer, lots of kids move to another city and are faced with meeting new friends and finding out about what to do in their new town. Your letter started me thinking that the Web can help a lot. So I put together a Web page at www.4kids.org/ askamy/ coolmove.html that can help you and other kids to look forward to moving. There are links to help find the city's home page or to make a map of their neighborhood. You can see what the weather will be like, look for historic places, and try to find a key pal at your new school. (This site is no longer available.)

Dear Amy: If I put up my own home page, what kind of things should I put on it?--Arnie, Pittsburgh, PA
Dear Arnie: A good place to start is to put up links to things that interest you. What kind of sports, music or computer games do you like? Do you have some favorite Web sites? Think about your friends and relatives that are visiting your page. What would they want to see? Pictures of a family event, like a wedding or even funny pictures of your pets are always fun, too. A good site for ideas and help is www.worldkids.net/ kotw/ ownpage.htm. Let me know when your page is up! (This site is no longer available.)
