An excellent kid-centric consumerist site perfect for all sorts of cross-disciplinary activities. You'll want to do some pre-planning (and have some fun) exploring all the various activities (click on "Show all menus") to see the tremendous number of activities available. And then there are the "Wacky Photos" (wonderful student-made captions) and the delightfully zany "Wacky Cards." Whoever planned this site really understands the pre-adolescent/adolescent mind-set. Your students will adore it, and it should generate loads of discussion.
