Web Site of the Week: Tween Tribune
This excellent news website from the Smithsonian Institute covers science, history, the environment, and other topics. Kids will love it for its quirky news stories. Parents and teachers will love it because they know they can trust the content coming from one of America’s greatest institutions of knowledge. Stories are sorted into age appropriate levels (Grades K-4, Grades 5-8, and Grades 9-12) and are also available in Spanish. Recent articles have explained the significance of two new planets discovered by astronomers, rejoiced at the birth of a baby orca, reviewed the history of Martin Luther King, Jr., and traced a classic Atari game from its place in a trash bag in New Mexico to its new home at the video game history collection at the Smithsonian. The website is free, though readers must create a simple account to comment on articles. [CNH]
