Smithsonian TT Español


Welcome to TTEspañol – the daily news sites for kids, tweens and teens – where you’ll find the most compelling, relevant and interesting news for 55 million kids in K-12 and their 3.5 million teachers.

Stories are selected by professional journalists working closely with teens, tweens and teachers. Teens and tweens can post comments, with all comments moderated by their teachers before they are published.

We allow teens and tweens to produce 99 percent of our content as a means of engaging them. More than 100,000 teachers have registered so far.

We’re encouraging kids, teens and tweens to seek out news on a daily basis because our democracy depends upon a well-informed public, so we believe it is important to foster a daily news-reading habit as soon as kids begin to read.

I clicked on the “Spanish” tab to find articles by students for students on subjects pertinent to the Smithsonian’s mission. I am planning on assigning an article to be completed wherever the students can access the internet: library, classroom or phone.

Pros: Online resource for intermediate to advanced level Spanish. Articles can be assigned to students with follow-up quizzes.

Cons: Many of the older articles have not been edited for spelling and grammar errors.
