Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that kids can use this site -- which features links to other sites -- to get homework help for all kinds of subjects. Started by a teacher and organized by specific curriculum covered in schools for different ages, the site of culled resources is broken down into sections and subsections and the links are listed in a grid format, which makes scanning them easy. According to the site, the links are checked weekly and any dead links are removed. There are some Google-sponsored ads.
Is It Any Good?
KidInfo.com calls itself "the Web's best homework and student, teacher/parent reference resource." It does link to a lot of information -- which it says is curriculum covered in schools -- and it's helpful that the links are organized by subject matter. But finding what you are looking for will still take some searching, and may not be on the site at all. Some sections, like Health, are lengthy and detailed. However, students looking for info for their art class report probably won't get much help from the site's six artist-specific links. In truth, KidInfo.com may not be the perfect homework helper, but it's a good place to find interesting information and a number of great, safe-for-kids resources to spark interest in school topics.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
