CNN Student News – (Gr. 5-12)

CNN’s Student News bureau covers news that students should know to stories students will want to know. Topics range from serious news stories reflecting current events to stories on the lighter side of the spectrum. Many of the stories are streaming video-based, so Flash is required to use the site. Download maps (in PDF format) to go along with some of the news stories and each episode is accompanied by a daily news quiz.


  • Make the viewing of this site a part of a regular assignment for students. Students can select one or two stories that interest them and bring them to class for a group discussion. Do any of these news stories affect them and their community? If so, how?
