We’re excited to now offer educators daily, standards-aligned curriculum activities tied to each day’s show.

Channel One News Curriculum is a three-part instructional routine that uses nonfiction video and text as a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary teaching resource. These student-centered activities integrate English language arts with core subject areas, like science, math, social studies and geography, and are supplemented with vocabulary, discussion questions, quiz questions and information about the standards that align to the activities.
