With school back in session, you’re probably looking for quick and easy ways to help your kids with their homework assignments and projects. Kids.gov has you covered.
Kids.gov is the U.S. government’s website for children (grades K-8). Kids, parents and teachers can use the site to get help with homework, access lesson plans, watch videos, play games and more. The website pulls together the best resources from across government, and puts them in one place so they are easy to find.
Kids.gov is safe and free, so parents and teachers don’t have to worry about kids seeing anything inappropriate while they’re exploring the site.
If you’ve visited Kids.gov previously, you’ll notice that the website has been completely redesigned. The vibrant new site provides areas for three specific audiences: kids (grades K-5), teens (grades 6-8) and grown-ups (teachers and parents).
