Kid-Friendly Search Engines

While Google is a wonderful tool, we learn at the elementary level to use it only as a last resort. Some problems we may encounter are WAY too much information and possibly access to inappropriate materials. With that in mind, please use some of the kid-friendly search engines below in place of Google. Remember- if you need to use Google at school, you must have the permission of a teacher first.
