Search Engines

http://dmoz.org/
The Open Directory is a volunteer edited directory similar to Yahoo, but without the ads. Its education sections are particularly good. The Open Directory is also available at Netscape.

http://www.yahoo.com/
http://www.yahooligans.com
Yahoo organizes their sites with subject headings, like a library. The sites you find with Yahoo are more likely to be relevant. Yahooligans allows you to find web sites which are appropriate for children.

http://espanol.yahoo.com
http://www.es.lycos.de
These are two search engines which allow you to search for Spanish-language sites.

http://www.askjeeves.com
http://www.ajkids.com
"Ask Jeeves" is a very easy search engine to use. You phrase your search as a question, and Jeeves selects a few interesting sites for you.

http://www.dogpile.com
Dogpile searches many search engines simultaneously. This saves you a lot of time when you are looking for something specific.

http://k-6educators.miningco.com
http://esl.miningco.com
The Mining Company searches the web for you, and collects good resources at a single site. This can cut down your search time significantly. The two sites above are for the Elementary Education and ESL/Bilingual pages.
