Kayla Thooft’s fifth grade class at RTR El­ementary School watches a weekly program in their Social Studies class called KET News Quiz, that is available exclusively on­line on https://pioneer.pbslearningmedia.org/
“The program has been running for 35 years, and the students really enjoy it,” Thooft says. “It talks about all sorts of differ­ent types of news and cur­rent events. Throughout the program, they teach the students about dif­ferent vocabulary words that are related to the news stories, also while strengthening geography skills through maps, and improving listening skills and knowledge of current events through ten quiz questions for the students to answer.”
