Kids Discover is an award-winning library of science and social studies material that is accessible on any device, at any time. I love how it provides students and teachers access to high-quality reading material. It’s perfect for reading across content areas. Kids Discover’s website includes lots of free content for students and teachers. There is also plenty of extras for subscribers – such as assessment tools and access to the full library of resources.
