Kids keeping up with the news… online…

February 7, 2011 Leave a comment

Want your students to explore news and non-fiction online?

For example, what do they know about Egypt, which has been in the news for the past week?

Try some online newspapers and magazines for kids.

We just subscribed to a new biweekly one called “Our Little Earth“.

Read the January 28th edition here.  The lead story is about people rising against governments in Tunisia and Egypt.

CCBC – the BBC newsite for kids – also has a lead story on protests in Egypt.

For background information, try Qwiki. It’s a kid-friendly visual wikipedia that reads the information aloud.

Click here to see the basic Qwiki entry on Egypt.
