Turn your students into fans of learning! Students compete against each other by managing teams of countries or states that score points based on how often they are mentioned in the news, as well as the tone of those stories. It's like fantasy football for social studies! Whether you want to keep up with U.S. or Global current events, FanSchool has a game for you.
