Picture Match Picture Match is designed to give new readers practice with identifying beginning-letter and short- and long-vowels sounds through a simple, fun game. Updated in 2008, the game features all letters of the alphabet. In the beginning-letter sounds section, a picture of an object (for example, a car) is displayed, and students are prompted to choose the letter that corresponds with the first letter of the word. In the short- and long-vowel sounds sections, students are prompted to choose the vowel that corresponds with the word.

Carbon cycles between land (as stored in trees, fossil fuels, and other living and dead organic matter) and the atmosphere (as carbon dioxide gas, CO2). You have probably heard about "global warming": CO2 gas in the atmosphere is a major contributor to these increasing temperatures because it traps heat, but trees and other plants can pull CO2 out of the atmosphere. With support from the National Science Foundation, scientists have created a computer model to simulate the effects of rainforest deforestation and agriculture (planting pasture crops) on the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere and on animals living in the rainforest.
