Posted Sep 20, 2007
Bookmark and Share

Resourceshelf's Senior Editor Shirl Kennedy compiled and annotated an awesome collection of education resources largely from government Web sites in the September 20, 2007 version of the Resource of the Week article she does. The article starts:

USA.gov is, of course, "the U.S. government's official web portal." So what is Kids.gov and why is it especially worth your time if you are a student, a teacher ... or a parent?

Kids.gov is the official kids' portal for the U.S. government. It links to over 1,200 web pages from government agencies, schools, and educational organizations, all geared to the learning level and interest of kids. Kids.gov is maintained by the Federal Citizen Information Center (FCIC), those folks in Pueblo, CO 81009.

We recently spotted a press release from the U.S. General Services Administration hightlighting a new design for the Kids.gov site, along with some organizational changes. ... Certainly worth a bookmark in the classroom the media center, the public library ... and on the computer the kids use in your home.

There's plenty more as well. Click HERE to link to the full text of Shirl's article, "Resource of the Week: Kids.gov ... and a few other resources for studetns and teachers."
