FindingDulcinea is a superb site for teaching students how to use the Internet effectively and responsibly. Its “On This Day” column covers each day an intriguing historical event – what led up to it, what happened that day, and what has happened since. Its “Happy Birthday” column celebrates inspiring people, both historic and contemporary. The articles in both sections contain links to the online sources where the information was found.

Scavenger Hunt Fun
July 10, 2006 -- From Jennifer, from San Diego, CA, who is not affiliated with the site.
While nosing around the internet with my four year old, I ran across this fun scavenger hunt for kids. The hunt asks for questions that can be found on other kid-friendly websites.
With my reading help, my son had no trouble finishing the search. My 9 year old also participated and thought it was really cool!
