The United States government has created an interagency kids’ portal to accompany its broad-based FirstGov.gov site for teenagers and adults. The site has been divided into educational subjects that you might have in your school. Kids.gov provides links to federally sponsored kids’ sites, along with some of the best kids’ sites from other organizations, all grouped by subject. Subjects include arts, careers, computers, environment, fighting crime, fun stuff, global village, geography, homework, history, plants and animals, recreation, money, science, safety, space, and transportation. Within each subject, Kids.gov has divided the sites into four categories: government, organizations, education, and commercial. The government sites could be federal, state, or military sites, and generally do not sell anything. They are simply sharing information with visitors. Organization sites are developed by groups that have an interest in a special topic and they want to share their information. Occasionally these sites do sell products. Education sites are developed by schools. They can be developed by colleges or high, middle, or elementary schools and usually do not have products to sell. Commercial sites are developed by businesses to share information, but they also have products to sell.
