ResearchRocket by NewsBank
SLS has been provided a free trial for the 20-21 school year for NewsBank's newest database, ResearchRocket.
ResearchRocket is a new online resource designed to make research more engaging and fun for elementary students.
The unique interface features a large, Google-like search box as well as inviting buttons devoted to popular topics that align with your curriculum, including Science & Math, Environment, Technology, Art & Music, Government & History, and more.
Whether a student chooses to use the search box or select a topic, the results reveal relevant articles from a variety of credible magazines, newspapers, and other information sources — all age and reading-level appropriate and ideal for classroom assignments. Beyond rich content, ResearchRocket supports teachers with helpful lesson plans and professional development tools.
This resource is also valuable for differentiation for students in grade levels above elementary school.
