KidsClick “will direct students to valuable sites that are appropriate for students in grades K-8. By clicking on the Advanced Search option, users can limit their searches by reading level and number of pictures or search by URL. Teachers and students won't want to miss KidsClick! Worlds of Web Searching, a very cleverly done tutorial on how to search the Web. Nine different "worlds" of searching are explored that offer students lessons and activities for developing and improving their searching skills."
