I know some of you use Newsela for curating fascinating articles for your class to read but have you checked out TweenTribune?
TweenTribune shares K-12 materials gathered by the Smithsonian each week. While Newsela is mostly text-based this site offers text, audio and video, graphics and images to help draw your readers in.
I found a number of the articles interesting and timely.
I am sure some of you are already using this and I am just late to the game!
