I am English and am giving outside school help to some German children in their early teens. One of the questions I have been asked recently is "What is correct, I agree with, or I agree to ?" If they are both correct could someone tell me, (in simple terms!) how to explain that to the children?!

They are indeed both correct, but they mean different things. One example is that you can agree with someone, and you can agree to something.
"I agree" can be a sentence in itself. It is most likely to be expressed as agreement with someone's opinion. "I agree to" is likely to be followed by some activity or task. Example: "I agree to help you take out the trash." Feel free to come to your own conclusions about which is the more willing and which the more reluctant agreement.
