When elementary students begin surfing the Internet for information there are search engines that can make catching the waves a little safer.
Some of these filtered websites are appropriate for students, they block out adult ads on return results of a search query, offer suggestions of topics related to the search, or return Kid-Related websites.
KidRex- http://www.kidrex.org/ Kids Safe Search engine uses Google’ safe search mode and filters and results are kid-related websites.
DinoSearch- http://www.dinosearch.com - blocks all adult images, websites, and videos from appearing in search results page. The sides are clean of all ads.
The "co" stands for children only. "The websites included in Kiddle search are recommended by educators, librarians and parents from across the globe as well as websites our own editors have used in schools or for homework within the K-12 age range."
These are just a few suggestions of Kid Friendly sites but no search engine is completely fool proof. It's important to also talk about Internet safety and to stay invovled and monitor the sites that are visited.
Whatever you choose set it as your home page so it is easy to access for young surfers.
