Good news for kids!

News Current is written for students in 5th and 6th grades to help them understand and begin to apply a biblical worldview to their thinking. Consistent with other GWNews publications, News Current emphasizes News, Knowledge, and Wisdom with skills practice especially for this age group.

  • Editorials help teach critical thinking skills.
