My teenage daughter is always coming home and telling me about what she learned in school. She also talks about current events but sometimes I have no idea what she is talking about! Informucate is a website that has the top 12 news stories per day, all written in 200 words or less and they only take a few minutes to read! This is a lifesaver when it comes to having these discussions with my daughter, because all I need is five minutes and I am ready to talk about what happened in the world the day before.
If we are ready for something a little more fun, we head over to their daily trivia section. This is very similar to an “on this day in history” story but in video form. It is always so interesting to see what happened on this day years ago. We also learn
about national days that we never knew existed, such as national doughnut day (that is definitely a day to celebrate!) and national best friends day.
They also have a travel section that is fun to look at. If you are interested in learning about a certain place, they are listed in alphabetical order so they are easy to find. I like to plan my dream vacation. I absolutely love this website. They have a little bit
of everything and they keep me informed! I like to browse it when I have some down time, but I make sure to at least read the top 12 news stories each day. Check it out!
