10 Excellent News Websites For Children.

News is really important for children to read. I often like to do guided reading sessions in which my students undertake a news based activity i.e. summarising an article.

Below are 10 excellent news websites.  They are designed and written FOR children.  I’m always impressed when the websites have a quiz or activity at the end of the article. In addition, some of the sites let you reduce or increase the complexity of the article; great if you have a wide range of readers in your class.
