Directories and Search Engines

IPL Kidspace, KidsClick, and CERF are directories of sites selected by teachers and librarians.
Much of the work of choosing good sites for kids has already been done for you.
Google and Kid's Search Tools are search engines.
They will search the Internet for sites, but not all will be appropriate for kids.
