When I taught I used to use Scholastic News in the classroom. The kids and I both loved it, but it was a little pricey. So I was thrilled when I ran across this website. National Geographic has their past issues online that you can read online. This would make a great listening center/computer center with a science theme - I'm just sayin'! :) Besides having the issue online, there is a link to it for teachers to have a study guide and print off worksheets and such...for FREE!!
I ran across this while studying Insects with my preschooler. He loved listening to the insect stories that were in a few of the issues.
Be sure to check out this great resource! Below is a screen shot of the website. Enjoy!!
On a side note, I do have a Facebook page now, so "like" that for more updates and freebies of what is going on in my "country world".
