Hang Out at Thomas Jefferson's House Issue Date: 10-20-1996

Cool Spots imageSurf to www.monticello.org and get to know Thomas Jefferson in a way history books don't make possible. For instance, did you know that the third president of the United States made delicious ice cream? Did you know that he was an inventor, a great gardener and a grandfather who called politics the "hated occupation"? Learn about a typical day in the 18th century, and don't miss the Fun Facts on your trip to Monticello, Jefferson's home in Virginia. Go, and see the personal side of one of America's most interesting people.

Work, Work, Work, It's All I Ever Do Issue Date: 08-25-1996

Cool Spots imageLabor Day means one thing to most kids in the U.S. and Canada: the end of summer. But the first Monday in September means a lot more than back to school. Find out why we celebrate Labor Day at the Department of Labor's site www.dol.gov/opa/aboutdol/laborday.htm. When you know all about it, you may want to go to www.southam.com/nmc/waves/depth/india/ind0113b.html to find out about a kid working hard to stop child labor. Craig Kielburger, a 13-year-old Canadian, has spear-headed an effort to make this practice a part of the past. His work was inspired by Iqbal Masih, a 12-year-old Pakistani who was active in his own country until he was murdered for his efforts. Go to the Free the Children homepage on the Web at www.freethechildren.com to find out more about Craig and his mission. (The second site is no longer available.)
