FYI - Ask Jeeves Kids
Teachers can now easily answer their students' difficult questions with Ask.com's site for kids, Ask Jeeves Kids (www.ajkids.com). Students can ask Jeeves just about any question from "Why is the sky blue?" to "What is the capital of North Dakota?" and get immediate answers. The site offers homework help in the areas of history, astronomy and math, as well as homework resources such as a dictionary, thesaurus and almanac. In addition, the site's resources link connects students with other Web sites, while the fun and games link connects students with various educational games.
