This online magazine site offers current science articles that are categorized by subjects such as: space, animals, health, environment, technology, culture, history, video, and strange science. Use caution and preview the weird science before releasing this to students. The articles are fairly easy to read, and some are quite entertaining.
This site includes advertising.

In the Classroom

Use as a resource for research or science current events. It is a great site to aide you in increasing reading across the curriculum. Try finding a short article and having your class read it at the beginning of a session (choose something related to your content.) Ask the students two or three thinking questions. Give them time to think and then give time for them to share with a partner or two. Then, have a discussion and tie the article to the content that you are teaching. Appropriate discussion is a very valuable learning tool and skill that students need to develop.
