Where can 8- to 10- year-olds go to do research on the Internet?

If you were giving a presentation to a group of 3rd and 4th graders (ages 8-10) on how to do research for school projects on the internet, what would you tell them? Where would you point them?

[I am giving just such a presentation. Hope me!]
I'd be interested to know, for example, if there's a good kids' encyclopedia online. Also, if there are news sites or aggregators aimed at kids, or overviews of world events. Kids' sites focusing on the environment and/or ecology would also be good. Are there sites that make it easy for kids to connect to scientists or other expert adults with their questions? Any and all suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance!
