January 2017 Infotopia/Kidtopia Newsletter

Happy New Year!  Our January 2017 Infotopia/Kidtopia Newsletter is now online.  It's hard to believe it, but this is the beginning of the seventh year of our PDF newsletters. 

As you may know, we were both teachers and librarians and now that we are retired, we provide our search engines at no cost to our users.  Thanks for all your support. 
This month's issue includes some of our favorite recommended web sites for teachers and parents, including Edutopia, Mr. Nussbaum, and Khan's Academy.  It also includes simple instructions for using our high school search engine, Infotrek.info.  Finally, it includes a link to our KidtopiaGames.com in case you are looking for educational games for kids.
