news for kidsWe’re always looking for ways to make news and current events stories exciting and digestible for students, so we were pleased to come across a cool new website called TestTube.

On TestTube, you’ll find a hefty collection of articles, videos, and programs that answer convoluted questions like Does the U.S. Jobs Report Even Matter?, Could ISIS Terrorists Attack the US?, and What the Heck is 3D Printing? in an engaging and accessible way.

A word of caution for teachers: While most of the content on TestTube is student-friendly, you may want to screen the videos first before presenting them to your students.
