Need kid-friendly online news? This safe site, written for kids, by kids, offers news from a younger point-of-view. You can create a class page where you can load a variety of articles, add a book list, a calendar, favorite sites list, add lesson plan instructions, monitor student comments, and more. DOGOnews is kid-friendly, colorful, and flexible. After all, DOGO means young or small in Swahili. You can select articles from a number of categories (Social Studies, Science, World, Current Events, etc.). There is an integrated dictionary for challenging words and maps for geographical context. Some of the articles include short video clips. Students may leave brief comments about each article (no login required). Also, typing the word "video" in the search box will bring up the Video of the Week for the past several weeks. The videos reside on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. In addition, find a Book and Movie section with a brief summary for the book or movie, and comments. You don't have to join to read the articles, but you do need to join to create a class page. There are many benefits to creating a class page, and it's all free! Don't want to create a class page? You can also embed articles on your current web page.

tag(s): journalism (69), news (261), reading comprehension (135), sports (101)

In the Classroom

Non-fiction reading and background knowledge have found a new emphasis with The Common Core State Standards. It is more important now than ever to help connect students with quality, non-fiction reading and viewing material. Find great news resources and videos of the week to create assignments for your class at DOGOnews. You may want to create a class page and load several news articles. Have students choose from the articles, and email it to themselves. Have students print out the article and complete a "close reading" of the article by annotating it. Then have students who chose the same article get together in groups to discuss their reactions about the article, create a summary together, and create four or five open-ended questions about the article. Lastly, create groups of four, with each student having a different article, and have them present their article to the others in the group and ask them their open-ended questions to trigger a discussion. Create a class magazine from the articles. Or better yet, have students create a multimedia presentation using UtellStory, reviewed here. This site allows you to narrate a picture. Challenge students to find a photo (legally permitted to be reproduced), and then narrate the photo as if it is a news report. Strengthen reading comprehension by having an 'article du jour' on your interactive whiteboard or projector as students arrive. Link this site on your homepage.

Encourage students to get sixty minutes of exercise daily by partnering school workers with this site's two sponsors: the Department of Agriculture and the National Football League. You can join the program for free and see if your school qualifies to receive grants to help educate your students about exercise, nutrition, and healthy eating and also to increase student access to more physical education programs and better foods. Check with your school administrators to be sure it is acceptable to have your school join and to allow your students to individually register. "Quick Start Resources" help you learn how to use the program and set up their class as a team.

tag(s): fitness (54), nutrition (169)

In the Classroom

Participate in the healthy eating challenge by creating your own class video entry for the Cooking Show Challenge! Share the videos using a tool such as Teachers.TV reviewed here. Help your class members to apply to be student ambassadors. Help your students to sign up and start graphing their physical activity and nutritional changes, receive badges and prizes, see how their classmates are doing and encourage them by giving rewards, and finally, by viewing what other classes are doing. Share the information on this site with parents so they can support the lifestyle changes encouraged here at home.

This site features both traditional and modern playground and street games for ages 7-9. It also aims to encourage students to take part in physical activity through education. The site can be used in several ways. One is to explore different kinds of games such as chasing games, ball games, old school games, and more. See rules, items needed, and even a picture of what the game looks like. Be sure to check the tabs at the top of each game for other pictures that might be included facts or history of the game. The "build a game" section lets you upload your own games. Choose a background and one of two templates for how your page should look. Then enter information including rules, title, items needed, background information, and more. If you are just searching for ideas, try the link for Favorite Games where you will find favorites of other site users and a rating from one to four stars. Make childhood obesity a thing of the past by promoting positive play.

tag(s): fitness (54), obesity (15)

In the Classroom

As a healthy initiative, kids could choose games from this site and teach them to the class. Even better, have them write instructions ( and take photos) for their own game inventions and share them on a Playground games wiki or on the site. Have students create a multimedia presentation using Thinglink, reviewed here. This site allows you to narrate a picture. Find a classroom across the world to exchange ideas! This site is from the UK. How similar/different are their games from those in the U.S. or where you live? Interview a parent to find out what games he/she played at recess! Have students learn games, then add modifications that can be made to include students with disabilities.

At Skyrider for Kids you will find short, high interest nonfiction articles on a variety of topics (suspension bridges, owls, the food chain, and more), plus some follow-up activities. Most articles have either an animated image, audio, or video for the students to use.

tag(s): interactive stories (29)

In the Classroom

Here's the answer for "I'm done, what should I do now?" If you have one computer or more in your classroom, you can have the students choose a topic to read about, or you can choose for them. Some of the topics have follow up activities and some don't. It depends on whether you want the students to pursue a topic or just gain a little knowledge about it. Use your interactive whiteboard or projector to show students the nonfiction, interactive article about the Golden Gate suspension bridge. Break down all the interactive parts for them. Then challenge students or student groups to create their interactive poster on Venngage demonstrating their assimilation of the information your class just studied. Whether your students are studying Roman architecture, cells in science, equations in math, or any other unit of study that can have changing features, have them create an online, interactive poster using Venngage, reviewed here.

This European site features nutrition information in interactive format for two age groups: Kidz (ages 6-12) and ADOZ (ages 13-19). The KIDZ area features topics such as "Brain Food," "Nutrition Quiz," "Body Fit," "Safe Food," and "What's a Label?" The ADOZ section delves deeper into the same topics and more, including "Emotions and Eating" and "Food Myths." The nutrition information included in the site is from EUFIC but closely parallels comparable literature from the USDA and other US agencies. There is a "School and Parents" section with teacher's guides and background information about the site. You may want to turn down your speakers to avoid the intro music in each area. If you have speakers of European languages other than English, return to the coolfood home to select a different "flag" for another language.

Share the interactive quizzes and activities on an interactive whiteboard or projector to spark interest and assess prior knowledge at the start of your nutrition unit. Have student groups investigate food myths, facts, and more, then create their own online "Infoodmation" posters using a tool such as Easel.ly, reviewed here. Or have students create visual menus for balanced eating on a class wiki. Not comfortable with wikis? Have no wiki worries - check out the TeachersFirst's Wiki Walk-Through.

This site was originally created for the Summer Olympics, but many of the activities are useful for the Winter Olympics as well. Although some of the printables are available to members only, this site does includes some excellent FREE information on the history of the Olympics, maps, flags, Greek alphabet, writing activities, graphic organizers, "Invent a New Olympic Sport" challenge, and more. If nothing else, the printables offer some great ideas to implement in your classroom (for example, "Write a Sentence for Each Sports-Related Word").

What is Watch Know? Short for "You Watch, You Know," it provides explanations for students. Finding bits of information to help students can be frustrating as resources are disorganized on the web and may be hard to find." Watch Know" is a free site that organizes small video clips to help with the understanding of a variety of topics in subject areas. Search by age (3-18+). You can click and drag the age filter to the youngest and oldest ages to include. Videos are also organized by sequence of topics taught. The site is an ongoing project with input from educators and organizations interested in education of children. Registration is not required to view the videos. Creating and saving videos to the site, as well as commenting, require registration. You can monitor site recent changes and additions using the "Change Log."

tag(s): computers (108), crafts (41), decimals (126), environment (316), ethics (20), fractions (234), holidays (145), scientific method (68), video (275), vocabulary development (112), writing (360)

In the Classroom

Search for videos relevant to your upcoming units or share the link with older students to search on their own. Use clips as engaging openings to units or as a review at the end. Have students identify the main points in the video and relate it back to class information. Students can use the examples on the site to create their own videos about a topic they have studied that could be beneficial to others.

If you do join the site to submit videos (for more adventurous technology users), we recommend uploading, commenting, and participating in the project (the creation and growth of WatchKnow) as a whole-class collaborative activity. If your students create videos, critique them locally before submitting them to the site as the "bests" from your class.

This website offers a one-stop destination to all of your Olympic information. There are links across the top to learn about the athletes, sports, countries, and even a media player offering video clips and more. At the time of this review the media player had over 1,000 videos and nearly 10,000 photographs! This is an excellent site for research about the Olympics (both summer and winter). There is also a link to go back and learn about the past 46 Olympic games. Although there are no "student" or "classroom" links, this site truly has something for everyone: maps and geography, science behind the sports, research about events and countries, athete information, and more.

tag(s): olympics (51)

In the Classroom

The possibilities at this website are endless. Use your interactive whiteboard or projector to share the MANY videos, information about the athletes, and many other activities. Use the site for research purposes about specific athletes or sports. Have students create multimedia presentations about events, athletes, or countries using this site. Create a class Olympics Wiki! Not comfortable with wikis? Have no wiki worries - check out the TeachersFirst's Wiki Walk-Through.

This website (originally created for the 2004 Olympics, and updated in 2008and 2010) offers a great deal of information on the Olympics. Specific highlights include "In my Backyard," "History of the Games," "More to Explore," and "Get in the Game." There are also links to a Teachers Guide (with lesson plans for grades K-10 and standards), related booklists, interactive activities, and more. Although this site is slightly dated, it does contain some excellent information on the origin and history of the Olympics. Also, the "In The News" section is no longer updated.

Try the interactive "It's All Greek To Me" together on your projector or interactive whiteboard. Use this site for research about the history of the Olympics, politics and the Olympics, and other pertinent topics.
