Hi, kids! I'm Dakota! I am the newest doggy here at
Good Sites for Kids! I'm a retired hunter and mother.
My Brittany sister Lily is showing me the routine
around here. It helps we are the same breed and are
both South Dakota natives. When we're not helping out
on the site, we like to check out the outdoors,
chase rabbits, woof at kids on the schoolyard, rack out
on the hoomans' beds, and hang out with our peeps!

Wind Chill Calculator from NWS. Enter a temperature in
Celsius or Fahrenheit. Enter the wind speed in miles per hour,

to do the conversion, with tips on what to change to get more
exotic results.

Wind Chill Chart to check your work or for quick reference.
There is a box to right of the chart that lists other winter
weather resources.

 


Minnie Spotted Wolf
Minnie Spotted Wolf, American This tough, 5'5" (165 cm) ranch hand from
the Blackfoot Nation in northwest Montana
set fence posts and broke wild horses before
joining the US Marines in World War II.
She was a heavy equipment operator, a
truck driver, and a mechanic. When the war
was over, she went home and taught school
for 29 years, raised four kids, and kept working on the ranch.
She could outride the young men of her tribe into her 50s.
"Mom was proud of who she was. She wasn't in the military
just for herself, but for the Indian people. She wanted others
to know who she was and where she came from."
Another hard-working, honest, no-nonsense American woman.

 

Due to the confusion in the White House about
the location of the USA-Mexico border, we are
showcasing some sites from Geography as a
guide for the confused:
