Although that makes sense, there is no way that I am going to allow them to get on google and type anything in to the search bar.
That is where safe search engines come in! I have done the research for you. There are four that I like the most and have had my students test out and use over and over.
Uses Google Custom Search and Safe Search to eliminate most inappropriate material.
Kiddle.coHas large thumbnails and fonts for easy reading. It uses .co instead of .com because co stands for children only.
Has more ads, but safe Internet Filtering Software.
Designed for kids by librarians and has a great category search.
I like giving my friends choice. That is why I created a sheet with QR codes to each of the sites. I just hand these out to my students and they scan the QR of the search engine they would like to use. Want to try with your class? Just click the picture below to download for free!
