Kids InfoBits

 

Kids InfoBits is like having two databases in one to serve the diverse needs of two groups of young students — those in kindergarten through grade two and the more research-savvy students in grades three through five.

Younger students often can’t narrow their topic to a single word or phrase; or, if they can, may have trouble spelling it. Kids InfoBits addresses this from the first screen with a lively, icon-rich topic tree that enables children to click on it and drill down from a broad topic to a narrowly-focused one. Not only does this simplify research, it also helps students visualize the research process.

Upper elementary students may opt for the subject search functionality of Kids InfoBits. After they enter a keyword or phrase they access the results page that tabulates the information they need by source type from the following:

  • Reference
  • Magazines
  • Newspapers
  • Maps, Flags and Seals
  • Charts and Graphs
  • Images

Kids InfoBits meets the needs of young students with simple, quick access to curriculum-related information on current events, arts, sciences, health, people, government, sports, history and more.
