What is Education World?Education World is an extremely deep site that not only has a search engine focusing only on educational and teaching-related Web sites, but also has extensive resources for educators and parents. It's an excellent site that has been around now for about ten years, and should be on every teacher's "Must Have" list of online bookmarks.
How To Use Education WorldTo use Education World's educational search engine, all you need to do is navigate to the Education World home page; the search query box is up on the top, upper right. You have a couple of choices here; you can choose to only search Education World's extensive education database, or you can search the Web for more educational sites. At the time of this writing, Education World's search engine was able to search 500,000 different educational sites.
My search for "Christmas" using only EdWorld's sites brought back over 200 excellent resources including lesson plans, good books to read to the kids, and classroom planning tips. The same search using the greater Internet option was just as good - I was able to view over 700 educational sites, all about anything from Polish Christmas traditions to Christmas word games. In addition, you can use EducationWorld's Advanced Search option simply by clicking on the Advanced Search text link.
