Sources for Science Articles

I have compiled a list of websites that can be used to find science current events which can be used when addressing the Common Core State Standards Literacy in Science and Technical Subjects and the Next Generation Science Standards Practice 8:  Obtaining, Evaluating, and Communicating Information.
Science News Websites:

If you are having a hard time finding articles that meet the reading level of your students, you can complete an Advanced Google Search to sort by reading level.  Here are instructions on how to do that.

You can also search Google Books and Google Scholar.  Check out this blog post for information on those two resources.

I compiled all of the sites above into a Google Custom Search Engine.  You can type in the topic you are looking for, and it will only search the above news sources.

Click here for the Public URL for the custom search page.

Or, type your search in here:

Here is a sample of a search for "cell organelles".  1800+ results were found from those news sites.

You can create your own Google Custom Search for projects in your class as well.  Click here for Google Custom Search.  If you would like the code to embed my Science News Article Search into your own webpage for your students, here is the code:  


  (function() {
    var cx = '014690327803651444005:dh0sprq_3gu';
    var gcse = document.createElement('script');
    gcse.type = 'text/javascript';
    gcse.async = true;
    gcse.src = (document.location.protocol == 'https:' ? 'https:' : 'http:') +
        '//' + cx;
    var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];
    s.parentNode.insertBefore(gcse, s);
