Teaching Kids News - Short Lessons About the News

Teaching Kids News is a news site developed for use in elementary school and middle school classrooms. Teaching Kids News features timely and relevant news stories written on a level that students can comprehend. Each article is accompanied by a set of discussion questions, writing prompts, reading prompts, and vocabulary words.

Applications for Education
Teaching Kids News reminds me a bit of the old Scholastic Weekly News that I loved to read in elementary school. TKN could be a good place for elementary school teachers to find some short current news lessons to use in their classrooms. TKN is based in Canada, but it does contain articles that are relevant regardless of where you live.
