The following databases are designed for K-12 students and teachers. For education majors, they are useful to help design age appropriate research assignments. You may limit your search by reading level (Lexile), making it possible for you to find the articles that best suit your reading skills. Articles with lower Lexile ranges (200-750) will be easier to read. Those with higher Lexile ranges (850+) are suitable for readers with more advanced skills.
