This idea came from @ejw232, a teacher on Twitter, who asked if there was any website that supplied print-off news headlines she could display in her classroom. I’m never one to shy away from a challenge, so here is the first (I’m hoping of many) science in the news downloads.
It includes five of the most interesting, and relevant to school science, news stories of the past week. Each story has QR code and URL which will send students to the news story and a question to get them thinking. This could used as an enrichment activity, competition or homework.
I would love feedback on this new idea. Please let me know if this is useful or if there is anything you want added to make it more useable in the classroom.
