Searchasaurus is a great place for kids to search for information found in a variety of sources.  It is specifically designed to keep their interest and to make searching easier by breaking things into subject categories by using visual searching.
   

Like Searchasaurus, Kids Search is geared towards kids from eighth grade on down.  It is less image-oriented, and still carries articles from magazines & newspapers, books & encyclopedias, EBSCO animals, biographies, radio & TV news transcripts and photos, with the addition of maps & flags.
   

The Student Research Center is a database created for 6 - 12 grade students.  It contains the same types of sources as the other children's databases, with the addition of country reports, state/province reports, primary source documents (like the Constitution).
