These links take you to the original ClickSchooling reviews with links to the “curriculum” content. A couple of the links within the reviews are no longer working. (Bummer!) However, the slight disappointment of clicking on a rotten link, will soon be forgotten when you click on all of the good ones!

Note: Parents, as always, should preview all of the websites to determine suitability of content and supervise use of the Internet.

*Peeps Math – Includes Peeps-themed math lessons for grades K-8 and a recipe for making your own home-made version of Peeps.

*http://clickschooling.com/2006/04/marshmallow-peeps-science/“>Peeps Science – These websites document science experiments conducted on Peeps — some of which may inspire your own Peeps experimentation. The studies focused on basic attributes and reactions of Peeps to simple conditions and stimuli.

*Peeps Language Arts – Watch a creative retelling of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings in a photo-illustration using Peeps as the characters.

*Peeps Social Sciences – Enjoy a Peeps travelogue and watch the amazing and funny results when you tell your co-workers that you don’t like Peeps. You can also test your knowledge of the history of Peeps by taking an online quiz.

*Peeps Art – The fist link here on “How to Draw a Marshmallow Peep” is no longer viable – so don’t bother clicking on it. But you can still get instructions for making an incredible, edible Peeps necklace -and you can view a Peeps art gallery!
