Smithsonian Tween Tribune
Welcome to TweenTribune – the daily news sites for tweens – where you’ll find the most compelling, relevant and interesting news for 55 million kids in 5-8 and their teachers.
Stories are selected by professional journalists working closely with tweens and teachers. Tweens can post comments, with all comments moderated by their teachers before they are published.
We allow 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 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.
