We can't wait for you and your students to pick up the April issue of Scope and read about how 12-year-old Bella Rossborough got plastic bags banned from her hometown.

The April 2018 issue of Scope features a Short Read about Mount Everest and how, after series of earthquakes, it may have shrunk an inch. After reading the article "Did the World's Tallest Mountain Shrink?", explore these awe-inspiring resources to keep the learning going around the cultural obsession that is Mount Everest.


Here's a sneak peek at what you'll find in the April 2018 issue of Scope.

For each issue of the magazine, Scopes Contest Coordinator McKenzie Schwark chooses one winning contest entry to celebrate here on the Scope Ideabook.
