Kids Newsroom

“Kidsnewsroom.org provides children with a safe, kid-friendly Internet site loaded with stories, pictures, contests and opportunities for learning. Each week, a new issue is added to the site with the latest news in sports, music & entertainment, health, history, local events and happenings around the world, all designed with kids in mind!”

This site is great for kids, especially for in-classroom use. At the top of the page near the title Kids Newsroom there is a button with a goofy looking cartoon guy that reads How to Use this Site. This area explains the many great applications of this site, from using it in the classroom to kids using it on their own. It is an excellent How-To section.

The circle buttons provide access to the following sections: Weekly News, Info Central, Games & More, Our Writers, Election 2004, and About Us.

The Weekly News sections include: This Week in History area, World and Local news, Government, Science & Technology, Sports Zone, Comics & Poems, and Music & Entertainment. The setup reminds me of a real newspaper. And you can even access past issues with the drop down box at the bottom of the page.

Info Central has special news articles directed at kids in a variety of categories. The categories are: Special Topics, Science, History, Language Arts, Math, Geography, and Art. Some are written by Kids Newsroom Staff and are denoted with a KNR in front of them. Others are students’ projects and are denoted with an S in front of them. I liked the Special Topics area where kids can learn to write websites in HTML and write stories among other things.

Games & More has a variety of games that help challenge your child’s mind while they are having fun. You’ll find games like quizzes on information, Simon Says, Battleship, Math Flash cards, and Pegs, just to name a few.

The Our Writers section introduces the staff of KNR. Find out who’s writing these articles! This lists the writers, their featured column, and when they started writing. If you scroll down the page, you can even find out about past writers at KNR.

The Election 2004 section has articles about the presidential election of 2004. You can also find a listing of the presidential nominees for the election. While this is old information now, it can still be useful for school projects!

The About Us section has the mission statement of KNR. Find out how they got started and why they do what they do!

This is a great site for kids and an excellent resource for teachers. I can’t wait to send this one to my Mom to use at her school!
