SEA-SAWS is fun for kids of all ages. Select photographs of natural and man-made objects, then assemble the pieces to create a seascape or an abstract composition. The BUILD tool helps you construct animated characters. ADD them to your scene as still objects, movers, rockers, or rollers. Hit the green PLAY button to set the scene in motion.

RECOMMENDED BROWSERS: On a PC, use Internet Explorer or the most recent version of Firefox. On a Macintosh running OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard), Safari runs best in 32- bit mode. Here's how to change it. Firefox works well in OS 10.6, but it has some incompatibilities with OS 10.5 (Leopard) that may cause pieces of the interactive to "disappear" from view. If that happens while you're playing, just resize the Firefox browser window by dragging the bottom right corner to refresh the screen. If you are using an older Mac running  Leopard or Tiger, we recommend using Safari.

PLUG-INS: If you see a broken plug-in icon or the top of the page is blank, download or update your Shockwave Player.
