What a great question from mommytoadam: "Does anyone know of any good current event websites for kids?"
She is a mom struggling to find age appropriate news for her 8-year-old 3rd grader who has to do current event projects. I understand the quest for kid news. I'm a news buff myself (Anderson Cooper are you reading this?), yet often find myself turning from the news because it's just too much for my little ones.The thing is, I want them to be aware of current events--I really want them to be curious about what's happening in the world around them.
Well, because mommytoadam thought to ask the question, Laura1229 thought to answer it. Yay! Her suggestions for current event websites for kids are all really great, so I'm passing along. Thanks from me too, Laura.
Do your kids watch the news?
