Looking for Free Nonfiction Articles?


  I was introduced to a new free educational website. Smithsonian Tween Tribune  is a K-12 site with news articles. The reasons I love this site are:

  • You can change the Lexile level of articles. 
  • You can assign quizzes based on the articles.
  •  You can search for articles by Lexile level.
  • Lexile levels range from 500-1600.
  • Students can be added to your class to allow the students to comment on articles. (Great for having a class discussion, which can be only seen by your class or made public by the teacher) 
  • They have certificates for students success on quizzes,
  •  The articles are chosen by professional journalists.
  • They have articles in Spanish.  

Now that you know why I love this site check it out for yourself by clicking here.
