Excellent site created by librarians with a search engine of appropriate educational sites for children.
Best Sites for Children: Search page
Search Berit's Best Sites. The only problem is that after you follow a link you have to click the Reload button, because the data from the search may be missing.
Large web site of educational links and a search engine feature to search these links.
A SecureSearch is safer for students and other users because it does not search the entire Internet, only those sites that have been approved for educational use.
- Education Search Engine
Database of 110,000+ sites related to educational topics.
Awesome Library - K-12 Education Directory for Kids
Search engine with a kids category. (limited results)
Web'n Refined Search
Search engine of good educational sites, with ratings and grade levels. However, this is a fairly small database.
Doesn't give descriptions with first search results and some terms were hard to guess at the relevance. But the next level produced good descriptions of sites with ratings and approximate grade level provided.
AOL NetFind Kids
A search engine that links only to sites that are safe for kids.
Child-safe search engine. Not reviewed for educational relevancy.
Sites found were screened for inappropriate language etc., but not for educational relevance. A lot of commercial and advertising sites were found.
Ask Jeeves for Kids
Ask a question in plain English instead of using key words. AJ will tell you what questions he does have answers for that might be similar to yours. Only "G-rated" Web pages and Web pages written specifically for children are included in this knowledge base. Note: One annoying feature is that when you go to a suggested site, the location at the top of the page is still listed as AJKids.com. In order to get the correct address for citation purposes, you need to hold down the mouse button (right button on Windows machine) on a blank area of the page. This will bring up a menu that allows you to open a "new window with this frame." (Note some older browser versions do not have this function.) The new frame will list the correct location of that page. At the bottom of the original search results from AJ, you will find that several major search engines have also been searched with the protection of Surf Watch, but not with any filter for educational or child relevance.
A search engine with built in filters that screen-out pornographic, violent and hate-related sites. Sites are not filtered for educational relevancy.
