Weekly KidLinks #1 – Geography

After much discussion between my husband and I, it has been decided that it would be good to offer Weekly KidLinks on a variety of topics. We have seen our children use the current KidLinks and default to certain websites over and over again and we want to change this. We want their learning time on the computer to be fresh and exciting, so we proudly bring you the first set of Weekly KidLinks.
