The Thrill of Live Reporting

Sunday Night Football reporter Michele Tafoya shares tips with Kid Reporter

By Grace Ybarra | October 25 , 2011

On September 25, the Indianapolis Colts hosted the Pittsburgh Steelers in a nationally-televised NFL football game broadcast on NBC Sunday Night Football. One member of the Sunday Night Football team is Michele Tafoya, who reports from the field during games.

Before the Colts-Steelers game, Kid Reporter Grace Ybarra talked to Michele Tafoya about being a female sports journalist and how covering live sports is different than other kinds of reporting.

    Magic School Bus, The and the Climate Challenge and The Magic School Bus® Inside the Earth (Playaway)

    by Joanna Cole;Bruce Degen

    Climate Challenge:

    Like it or not, global warming is a hot topic, and it will affect the younger generation the most. So why not turn to the teacher kids like the most, Ms. Frizzle! Only the Friz can boil all the hoopla down to the scientific facts in a fun and informative way.

    Inside the Earth:

    Rock collecting has never been quite like this! When the class forgets to do its homework, a fieldtrip through the Earth's crust, into the center of the Earth, and out through a volcano will teach them not to forget their assignments again - and then some!
