For over 25 years, we've been creating beautifully crafted nonfiction products for kids. With our team of talented writers, award-winning designers and artists, and subject experts from leading institutions, we set out to build our most ambitious product to date: Kids Discover Online.

Get Inspired

We’re all born with an innate curiosity. Sometimes all we need is a little inspiration to tap into it. Our homepage is an endless feast of science and social studies material. Explore over 1,000 engaging topics, discover new interests, and get inspired about the world in which you live.

Assess and Grow

Assessments come in all shapes and sizes. They serve as a measure on student progress, and help guide you and your class through the year’s curriculum. That’s why we’ve created a dynamic new feature that makes it easy to build, distribute, assess, and track customizable quizzes, tests, and homework assignments.

Read Confidently

Not every child reads at the same level, and that’s okay. What’s challenging for one reader may come easily for another. We’re excited to offer 3 Lexile ® Reading levels that take into account grammar, vocabulary and sentence length. Whether you’re helping your child learn to read, or whether you’re teaching 8th grade social studies, we’re here to help.

Make Connections

Inquiry-based learning is more important than ever. That's why we've engineered Discover Map. This visual concept map literally connects the dots across different subject areas and time periods. Help cultivate a child’s ability to research and make connections independently, and have a little fun along the way.

Kids Discover Online is a game-changer. My students are absolutely hooked. It’s not easy finding products that specialize in high-interest nonfiction for the elementary and middle school grades. This is a must try!

Search By Standards

Every lesson starts with a set of goals. Finding science and social studies material that aligns with those goals should be easier. Our Search by Standards widget enables educators to search our library by grade level, subject, and State, Common Core, and Next Generation Science Standards. More control to educators means more effective lessons, and more engaged students.

Plan Ahead

Every lesson has the potential to impact your students. But with so much material on the web, it’s hard to know where to begin. We’ve built our Classroom tool to help educators create a shared space for the day’s lesson. Invite students to join your classroom and assign different reading levels based on individual abilities. Focus your energy on what matters most: learning.

Stay Organized

We know your time is valuable. Trust us, we’ve been there. That’s why we created a personal space for educators to combine content from across our extensive library. Save material to your Desk, build out custom units, and prepare for upcoming lessons. It’s that simple.
