Ask Jeeves - Users enter questions (already a better pedagogical start than choosing keywords) to which Jeeves responds with an array of related queries. Each question links to a Web site that can hold the answer. In addition, a meta search of popular search engines offers up their potential hits. An immediate application is to use Ask Jeeves to quickly find a hotlist of good sites while you build a Web-based activity using Filamentality (sorry about the plug, but it's a match made in heaven). Also, Ask Jeeves for Kids will end your search for the perfect engine to use in the classroom.
