A good website for the student who ALREADY has a good understanding of the 
names, formulas, and combinations of ions.  Ch. 3 provides a challenging 
practice program.

A good, but college level, tutorial on the naming of ions and the compounds 
they make.  This is an excellent place for students to learn more and practice
what they know.

The NOVA special "The Diamond Deception" is very nice trip through
the science
of the diamond as it relates to light and its atomic structure.

An interesting article from a commercial, online newsite reporting on the
ability to CREATE DIAMONDS from the carbon remains of loved-ones.  Note that
it's commercial and may have pop-ups, for which I have no control and take no
responsibility.

This is for making what I would call "gak".  It makes a couple of
hands full,
so be prepared to have a lot of gak.  To make it "flubber", just add
about a
cup of corn starch to the glue and water mixture.  ENJOY!
http://www.muddlepuddle.co.uk/Science/kitchenscience.htm

This has the recipe for everything from flubber to oobleck.  AWESOME!
