The present paper addresses children’s use of the Internet to search information on elementary school classes, focusing on how to scaffold children in overcoming difficulties when searching Natural Sciences topics on the Internet. This paper also intends to explore which tools and which teaching strategies will successfully support children in searching on the Internet. The results of this research illustrate the potential of the use of assignments that suggest the use of keywords in searching the Internet to perform Natural Sciences inquiries. Teachers should validate the suggested keywords to predict and prevent difficulties that students might meet. Moreover, the research results also suggest that teachers should be aware of any signs of children’s frustration and support them in overcoming difficulties.
