Filter Google results by reading level

Everyone can Google, but do you know enough of the cool tips and tricks to set you apart? I know my fair share, but was unaware that you can  filter Google results by reading level! It is pretty easy, just  search your  term, then on your results page, press Search Tools. Then, click on All Results,  and then on Reading level. From there, you can choose your reading level, either basic, intermediate, or advanced. Tip: Refrain from searching for “turtle cookies”, as the images are so wildly distracting, that it is hard to focus on reading level!

Don’t be shy about demonstrating tips and tricks that “show” what sets you (librarian) apart from the average Google searcher.
