Politics, the environment, entertainment, sports, and health are just some of the topics covered. TIME for Kids isn't as interactive as most of the other website on this list of educational websites for kids, but the site does tackle subjects that are in the news now while being written for an audience of children.


National Geographic Kids

Watch animal cameras, learn interesting tidbits about animals, see and share photos of nature, learn about different countries and try science experiments on Kids.NationalGeographic.com. These activities don't even begin to scratch the surface of the National Geographic Kids website. There's also a "Little Kids" section for the younger explorers in your home.


How Stuff Works

When your child asks all of those questions like, why the sky is blue, how a tornado forms, or any number of other questions they can come up with on a daily basis, head on over to How Stuff Works. The articles break down subjects like autos, culture, entertainment, science, money, technology and more. Games, quizzes, and videos also round out your children's learning experience.

Exploritorium

There are a lot of Science websites out there. However, Exploritorium has got be one the best in my opinion! It's a website that teaches kids about science and art in new ways.

Word, spelling, social studies, brain, science, art, vocabulary, literature and keyboarding games will get your kids started on a learning adventure.
