CNN Student News is one of the most popular sites for student news and current events, but there are many other sites out there that are worth taking a look at. Here are some of the ones that I have used over the last couple of years.
- KidsPost– This is associated with the Washington Post. This site focuses on important events, but has plenty of fun and entertaining articles as well.
- PBS NewsHour Extra– News site for students in grades 7-12. This site also includes a searchable database of articles based on topic as well as lesson plans for teachers.
- National Geographic News– This site is not designed specifically for students, but it is packed with interesting articles that focus on current events around the world.
- TweenTribune– This site is associated with the Smithsonian and has articles that are lexile leveled for students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
- CBBC Newsround– This is a good site for news and fun facts for students. It includes stories, pictures, and videos.
