How I Use It
It's great for individual and small group use when researching different topics in class (animals, places, science, social studies etc). Children are engaged when searching and can find what they are looking for without or with limited help once given a general over view of how, Has and image section so children can find images easily for projects.
My Take
In class it's a simple, safe web search to use when researching topics and kids find using Kiddle enjoyable. No need for a subscription as it's free and no logins for children/school/class. The encyclopedia section is good as well as their search. Most articles the children come across are easy to understand, however some articles could be a "little simpler" for their target demographic. There are ads, but navigating them and understanding the difference between ads and content is also a lesson in itself for children online, and unlike a lot of websites they aren't invasive. Also a good homework help aid.
