Kids need the news presented to them in a manner that they can understand with the background that they may not have learned yet. Here are some sites that gives the kids the news that they need to know.

Time for Kids Online
This popular weekly news magazine is presented to many classrooms in the U.S. and their Web site has much more information. This site offers the top news headlines with easy to understand background material, plus information that kids want to know about like interviews with authors, homework help and games that test your knowledge.

CNN Student News
CNN has a site devoted to kids news. You can even watch today's edition of Student News online if you miss it on TV. Each story is presented with clear information and also includes discussion topics for classrooms.

From the Washington Post, a news site just for kids. This site goes indepth into what important events are happening in the U.S. and includes fun for kids too. You will find birthdays of the week, this week in history, plus fun articles for kids that answers their questions like explainations of how animation is done.

Kids News Room
This site is great. It's sections are loaded with stories of of weekly news, around the world, science and technology news, this week in history, sports news, music and entertainment news, comics, and reports from the U.S. Government. For even more fun you can take a current events quiz.

Scholastic News
Scholastic has a kids news site that includes lesson plans, reproducibles, and teachers aids for teachers. The sections for kids includes news, special reports, vote now!, games and quizzes, movies, TV, music and sports. I really like the way the information is presented on this site because it takes the current event and expands on it to teach kids about the event - not just the latest headline.

On this site from the BBC, kids can read the news and even hear some of the stories. The entire site is devoted to kids and even includes a section on what to do if the news is upsetting. It includes sections on the UK, world, sprots, music, TV/Film, Animals, Sci/Tech, Weather, Pictures and a fun find out section where you can learn more about subjects in the news.

Yak's Corner
This site has fun stories along with teacher's guides that includes fun activities that expand on the subject. This site also has a large section on different animals, snacks and crafts.
