Linda Scott developed a Teacher CyberGuide based on "Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH," by American author Robert Leslie Conly (1918- 1973), who used the pseudonym Robert C. O'Brien. A CyberGuide is an instructional unit that is centered on a work of literature and involves the use of the Internet. This unit is intended for use with upper elementary students and focuses on unusual animal habitats. The San Diego County Office of Education provides this CyberGuide online as part of the Schools of California Online Resources for Education (SCORE) program.
