The full title for this site is “700+ Great Sites: Amazing, Spectacular, Mysterious, Colorful Websites for Kids and the Adults Who Care About Them.” The list is compiled by the Children and Technology Committee of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association.
Sites for children are organized by category: Arts and Entertainment, Literature and Language, People Past and Present, Planet Earth and Beyond, and Science and Technology.
Sample sites include Marsalis on music (https://www.wnet.org/), where children can learn about jazz and rhythm as they listen to snippets of Winton Marsalis’s music, and Science is Fun (http://scifun.chem.wisc.edu/), a source for home experiments like bending water using static electricity.
There are also links to adult sites, such as internet resources for special needs children, and a page called “Selection criteria: How to tell if you are looking at a great web site.” Among the characteristics the ALSC uses to evaluate sites are authorship, purpose, design, and usefulness of content.
