This site has hints and information for families with children of all ages, covering many topics. Great information on holidays and how to observe them. The style is very down to earth with personal stories from rabbis and educators. Good for parents, children and teachers.
Jewish historical and futuristic stories and activities for children. This one is geared to pre-teens. There is also a link for teachers.
This is a resource for young children who can read as well as for parents and teachers. There is good information for adults about holiday observances as well as games and pictures for children to color. This site features traditionally oriented information, but there is a lot of good material for all Jewish children.
This site is for Jewish teens. Here there is something for everyone from just plain fun to serious learning. It is a place where teens can write, have their questions answered, hang out, chat and learn in a Jewish context. It is made up of teen writers, editors and advisors from around the world.
Here is a site for those who work with Jewish youth. "Back Issues" features ideas that have worked, appeals for ideas, job openings. This is a place for teachers to share ideas with others and get new ideas for themselves.
This virtual Jewish library is user friendly and contains a wealth of information. The material written is easily understood language and the articles are not very long. For example, I looked for an article on Shavuot and found a paragraph that clearly explained what the holiday celebrates and where it occurs in the Jewish calendar.
