  1. Help! I adore using Surfswell Island with my 3rd grade students every year and have built a whole curricular unit around it! When trying to access the aussie version link, it will not load the game. It simply gets to the screen where it shows the box where the game usually loads, but it never does = only a black box and the page says “done” on the bottom of the screen. Am using IE8 on Win7 on district computers, have disable all popup blockers. Have also tried from home on vista = all to no avail!

  2. Gwen, Surfswell Island is one of those sites that is active and then not. I found it embedded on a completely new site, I’ll see if I can track that down and post the link here!
