Youngzine - News & More for Young Students

Youngzine is an online source of news, sports, and entertainment stories for elementary school students. Students will find stories to read and videos to watch in each of the information categories. Each news story is accompanied by a Google Map that has a placemark indicating where the story takes place.

Applications for Education
For elementary school or middle school teachers looking for current events materials that will suit their students' reading abilities, Youngzine could be a great resource. Youngzine also offers students the option to contribute their own reporting in the U-Write section. Students can sign-up individually to contribute to Youngzine's U-Write section or a teacher can register his or her entire class.
