Surfing the Net with Kids FREE Newsletter
#1. July 6, 2011
When using Google to search for a local restaurant or a site to help with algebra homework, would you like Google to give special emphasis to sites recommended by people you know and trust? For example, if your sister-in-law recently visited and loved the new Chinese restaurant that just opened downtown, or if I had recommended a new series of algebra how-to videos.
While this might sound too good to be true, it’s not. Google has actually been doing this for awhile. Let me explain how YOU can take advantage of the power of the people you know and trust to improve your Google searches. Just follow these three simple steps (it should take just three minutes!)
See ya on the Net,

#2. First Aid
by Barbara J. Feldman
First Aid Printable (** for premium members only)
First aid is the initial care given to an injury, and in some cases can save lives. Today’s site picks are a roundup of sites that teach and review first aid practices, with a special emphasis on making the lessons fun for kids.
American Red Cross: Anatomy of a First Aid Kit
Although this section of the Red Cross site is not specifically written for kids or teens, gathering all the needed supplies for a first aid kit makes an excellent family or scout project. “Include any personal items such as medications and emergency phone numbers or other items your health-care provider may suggest. Check the kit regularly. Make sure the flashlight batteries work. Check expiration dates and replace any used or out-of-date contents.”
First Aid Quiz
“The First Aid Quiz web site was created to provide a fun way to brush up on your first aid knowledge.” Created by volunteer paramedic Stewart Watkiss, it includes three interactive quizzes (“What position should someone with an abdominal wound be placed in?”), four crossword puzzles (both interactive and printable), three word search puzzles, and two hangman games.
Inquiry.net: First Aid Games
Sir Robert Baden-Powell (1857 – 1941) was a lieutenant general in the British Army and a founder of the Scout Movement. These outdoor first aid games are from his 1921 “Scouting Games” book. You will probably need to modify these games based on the age and knowledge of your group. And although the original text refers to boys (do I really need to say this?) these games can be played by both boys and girls!
