How I Use It
Keeping students up-to-date with science news is important and using this website has been convenient and reliable. The articles are all cited appropriately and written with students in mind.
My Take
I particularly liked the different options for articles - tech, health science, planetary science, etc., etc.. There is a helpful tool that is labeled "Classroom Questions" that I really enjoyed for a class opener. The articles are interesting and engaging for many middle school topics!
