Great Sites: Kid-Friendly Search Engine

In the last twenty years, the internet has drastically changed the way we do daily life, from how we shop to how we stay informed and connected. As teachers, the web can be an incredible source of great ideas and helpful sites....but it can also be very time-consuming finding the sites that are the most helpful. During this series, I will be doing that research for you and highlighting some of the best websites out there for teachers.

Today's Featured Site:

Kids Click is a site designed by a group of school librarians. It is a simplified search engine that only gives kid-friendly results. You don't have to worry about your students accidentally stumbling on content that might be inappropriate when doing research for an in-class project.

Kids Click offers students the option of searching in five different ways:

  • By Keyword
  • By Category
  • Alphabetically
  • By Media Type (pictures, videos, sounds)
  • By the Dewey Decimal System

Have you ever used this site before? What did you think? We'd love to hear your feedback!
