Want to learn a LOT about leap year? This is the place. There's an extensive explanation of the math and science behind when we do and do not observe leap years, and it's not as simple as every fourth year. Try linking this one to a secondary discussion about the solar system, or use it as a supplement during leap years.

Look to this site for any questions you may have about everything from blue moons, to quasars, to leap years. Find out the exact dates when spring, summer, fall, and winter arrive, and discover if there really is a connection between equinoxes and eggs. The clear and detailed discussions of astronomical events provide an outstanding on-line reference or refresher for teachers and high school students, but the information is a bit technical and lofty for independent use by younger students.

Here's an explanation of leap year that doesn't require a graduate degree to understand. It could be a useful supplement to a lesson on the solar system, or an interesting science "drop-in" for use every four years.
