I came across a great site to use with elementary or middle school students in all curricular areas. Teach Kids News is the brain child of Jonathan and Karen Tilley and Joyce Grant. Jon and Karen would present news stories to their son’s class and decided to dedicate a website to share news with children all over the world. Daily articles are written with elementary readability in mind and every article concludes with discussion questions for the class. I am very impressed with the range of content covered and see tremendous opportunity for integrating in every content area. Even if this is a site you use once a month, it is a must to have in your “teacher toolbox”.
