Today we are sharing a link to high-interest news articles that allow for students to select a lexile level appropriate for them offered for free with no restrictions. Smithsonian produces a free online publication that does just that. They also include quizzes that go with the articles, lesson plans, instructional tools, and videos. If students create a login they can also post comments and correspond with others in a moderated environment regarding an article. News articles include information about current events, history, science, tech and culture. Smithsonian also provides a page that is written in Spanish. The name of this site is called TweenTribune and they write their news for kids, tweens, and teens who have a range of lexile levels. To learn more go to tweentribune.com or check out one of their free sample lesson plans at https://www.tweentribune.com/teacher/lessonplans/design-female-lego-figurine/.
