Research made simple for oral reports

Sometimes helping our children to find research simple enough for them to easily understand can be a challenge!

One tip that we've found easy: My son Googles the topic of choice, plus the words "for kids": Today, it was "Red Sea for kids". This brings up links that are written and decorated for kids' use in projects just like these. I usually select the link he'll use (mostly for safety, and to save him exasperation), and my interpretation is minimized by kid-friendly content.
