Surfing the Net with Kids FREE Newsletter
#1. March 30, 2011
Today I have another favor to ask. Do you know of a fab online math resource? Would you take two minutes to share it with the rest of my readers? You can tell us about a site you own, a site you use, or a site you think is cool – as long as it has something to do with math (or maths, as the British say!). Here is the very short form where you can tell us the URL and what the site is all about:
After a quick perusal by one of our editors, your site review will be published here. Thanks!
See ya on the Net,

#2. Kids Jokes
by Barbara J. Feldman
Kids Jokes Printable (** for premium members only)
In honor of April’s appointment as National Humor Month, today’s topic is clean, funny jokes. National Humor Month was founded in 1976 by author Larry Wilde, who chose April because of its frequently bleak weather, the fact that it begins with April Fool’s Day and to counteract the stress of taxes being due on the April 15.
101 Kidz: Jokes
“What do you get if you cross a spider and an elephant? I’m not sure, but if you see one walking across the ceiling then run before it collapses!” With an emphasis on animal jokes, there are pages and pages of kid-friendly jokes and riddles here at 101 Kidz. Visit for jokes about chickens, dinosaurs, elephants, cats, insects, spiders and flies. A few of these animals have their categories listed on the main joke page. For the rest of the animals, you will need to page through the Animal Jokes section, looking for the sub-categories.
AzKidsNet: Knock Knock Jokes!
As good comedians know, how a joke is presented is just as important as the joke itself. I like the presentation at AzKidsNet because the punchline is hidden until you make it appear. On the Knock Knock Jokes pages, simply hover over “Who’s There?” to see the question, and then move over to “Answer” to see the punchline. The other joke pages, such as Elephant Jokes, Riddles and Brainteasers, use a variety of different (but easy to use) click and hover techniques to keep the answers hidden until you are ready for them.
Ducksters: Jokes: You Quack Me Up!
The navigation at Ducksters is simple, but it works. The jokes and riddles are divided into twenty-nine categories and subcategories. Some of the more unusual ones are Tree Jokes, Occupation Jokes and Geography Jokes. “What has five eyes and is lying on the water? The Mississippi River!” “Where do pianists go for vacation? Florida Keys!” “What rock group has four men that don’t sing? Mount Rushmore!” Ha ha ha!
