I would like to order a magazine for my Social Studies class to keep up with news. Anyone use Time Magazine or Scholastic News? Which one do you prefer for 5th grade?

I like Scholastic News, though I've never tried Time Magazine. Scholastic has mini videos and supplemental sheets that go with each issue.

I prefer scholastic news for younger grades. I really like the online services. It has been 6 years since I used Time for Kids.

I've used both and I definitely prefer Scholastic News for 2nd and 3rd graders.

My second graders enjoy reading the issues. I also like using the online resources that come with your subscription. You can project the issue on your smart board, play games related to the article, show videos that relate to the topic, and you have access to previous issues too.

and I prefer Scholastic News. I really like the online content, and they have often have good text-dependent questions with the main article.

I liked it better for 4th. I did a Donor's Choose for a year's subscription. Seemed more current, like a newspaper. But, I did like Time for magazine type articles...does that make sense??

I like both, but if I had to chose I'd also go with Scholastic news. They have great resources and graphics. Check out the online resources too. Love that, and much more user friendly.
