Search Engines for Kids Activity

Slide1

• Students will use three safe search, search engines, Kiddle.co, Kidrex.org and Google.com (with SafeSearch).  SafeSearch can help you block inappropriate or explicit image from search results.  The SafeSearch filter isn’t 100% accurate, but it helps to avoid most adult content.  Your students will look up different keywords on each site and explore 2 websites in the search results.  They will share what they found/learned with the class or another student in the class.  Students learn about and how to use safe search websites.
