42eXplore's Mississippi River Why go to a search engine when you can consult a pathfinder? When learning something new, it's nice to have more than one resource to explore. Here you'll find "four to eXplore" for each topic, in this case, the Mighty Mississippi River. On each page you'll find definitions, activities, the 4 good starting points, and many more links and resources for the thematic topic. Excellent site that can keep you going for days!
