Scholastic.com has joined with MSNBC.com in an agreement to bring news for kids to a wider audience. In-depth special reports and breaking news bulletins written by Scholastic's team of news and parenting editors will now be available from the MSNBC.com home page Quick Links via Scholastic News as well as on the co-branded www.scholastic.msnbc.com. Also featured on scholastic.msnbc.com will be information on popular culture, a weekly poll, and current events-related games and quizzes. Parents and teachers will find discussion guides and activities for use with children at home and in the classroom, and resources for education and parenting issues. In turn, as part of the agreement, MSNBC.com will provide Scholastic.com's audience an array of interactive features on numerous topics, including science, technology, space exploration, and social studies. These will appear on Scholastic.com's "Online Activities" area used by teachers and students in school.
