Search Engines in the classroom

Was preparing for a short demo on Google for my multimedia kids the other day and thought I would look around for some new ideas and content. Clicked over to Larry Ferlazzo's excellent site and found a link to Twenty-three interesting ways to Use Search Engines in the Classroom put together by Tom Barrett.

One idea I'm going to try soon is kind of the reverse of a scavenger hunt. Rather than give the kids a topic and have them create a search to find the item or subject, reverse that and give them a picture of what they are going to find. They have to figure out the search criteria. Sounds like a fun challenge.

Check it're bound to find one thing you can use!
