CBC Kids News in the Classroom


Your Classroom
via Google Hangout


Various Dates

Bring CBC Kids News to your classroom and get a behind the scenes perspective on how kids news is produced!

Connecting with a CBC Kids News producer via Google Hangouts, classrooms will learn the step-by-step process on how a news story is made, including picking a topic, the interview process, selecting the subject, and more. This session is ideal for kids aged 9 to 13, in single-class groups (i.e. not groups of classes.)

What you can expect from your CBC Kids News Google Hangout:

Duration: 20-25 minutes
We encourage your class to visit cbckidsnews.ca in advance of your Google Hangout.
To prepare, your classroom will be mailed a CBC Kids News Toolkit poster and postcards.
Using a news story currently in production, a CBC Kids News producer will take the class through the steps required to produce that story, step-by-step. A finished news piece is reviewed at the end.
The class and teacher are encouraged to participate throughout the session.
