World Building with Dr. Viau

We accidentally came across this website while surfing topics related to tropical rainforests (we're visiting our own Washington temperate rain forest soon). The Elizabeth Viau site is a wonderful imaginative scientific romp into designer 'worlds'. The computer technology is fairly low tech, but the science is intriguing. Great ideas here for problem-based learning in astronomy, geology, biology, and environmental science in general. Students gain practice at identifying questions and making predictions.
