Britannica School

Britannica School offers thousands of curated and curriculum-relevant articles, images, videos, audio clips, primary sources, maps, research tools, recommended websites, and three unique, but connected databases to meet every reading level.

Students can toggle between three reading levels on each article, have articles read aloud, and use Merriam-Websters’s double click dictionary to hear words pronounced and read their definitions in English or Spanish. Each article can also be translated into over 80 languages.
