Search Engines

Safety: Kiddle searches safe sites written specifically for kids, sites with content written in an easy way for kids to understand (handpicked by Kiddle editors), and famous sites written for adults but with great content (filtered by Google) . A message pops up if you try to search for something inappropriate.

Benefits: Kiddle is visual, has a big thumbnail image for each result,

and is readable since the print is larger than normal search results.

It includes options for Web, Images, News, and Videos- just like Google.

Wolfram Alpha is an AMAZING resource for information but is not really a search engine.

It's a computational knowledge engine: It generates output by doing computations from its own internal knowledge base, instead of searching the web and returning links.

Wolfram|Alpha is kind of like putting together a

graphing calculator, a library, and a search engine all together in one place.

Benefits: Wolfram|Alpha can do some AMAZING things and help you find information super quickly!
