Current Events for Kids

Great web resource for students grades 2-8.  The site navigates easily and intuitively.  There are three main sections:  current events, website reviews and maps.  Great for having students read articles and providing summaries.

I liked all of the above sites because I believe it is very important that children of all ages be global citizens of the planet and keep up to date with issues that effect us all. I would like to have seen NPR on here, just because I believe they offer content not available in may other media sources.
