How I Use It
I use this as an extra activity if a student has completed work. Normally I go ahead and look at the articles and create a worksheet with the articles. If I find a a particularly interesting article I also will assign it for homework with the questions. I find that this site gives students exposure to nonfiction reading about science, an area in which all my students are struggling in.
I like this website because it gives exposure to nonfiction science reading. My only concern was that it was rated at grades 3-8 and I found the vocabulary too hard for most third graders.
