Are there resources for current events related to science for elementary students?
This website has the “weekly scoop” and “Science snapshots” It talks about things that have happened in the past week with science that would interest elementary students. It also gives examples of how to use Science News in the classroom.
This is another great website that gives lots of current events about science:
Although not all sites are just science related, there are many great sites that offer current events from every subject of which you could pick out the science topics to focus on. Here are some examples:
These are some great sites that have science issues that are relevant today and often have children involved in the story such as a boy finding a mammoth tooth on his way home from school. There are also some great stories, and stories are always a good way to get students interested and engaged in what will be taught. It is also a plus that the sites from what I have observed are updated either weekly or monthly.
