The Particle Adventure
http://pdg.lbl.gov/cpep/adventure.html

This is a GREAT web site! The Particle Adventure is an interactive tour of the atom from the Lawrence Berkeley Labs. It can be used as an interactive tutorial software to lead students through quarks, mesons, leptons, and other secrets of the atom. It contains 3 paths of information: standard model of particles path, experimental evidence path, and beyond the standard model. Each path takes you on an adventure that explains some aspect of particle physics. The paths include great original (and copyrighted) graphics and cartoons. Each path contains interactive links. Excellent classroom activities are included.
