Newshounds by Squiz Kids


Newshounds is Squiz Kids’ eight-part media literacy journey, which enables you to teach primary-school students how to recognise misinformation and disinformation when they come across it.

Join Squiz-E the Newshound as he sniffs out fishy stories on the internet and teaches kids to STOP, THINK and CHECK.

Devised by the award-winning team behind Squiz Kids Today, Australia’s free daily news podcast for 7-12 year olds, the Newshounds media literacy program gives educators and parents the tools to teach this increasingly important life skill – and spark vital conversations along the way.

For a limited time Newshounds will be free to schools in both Australia and New Zealand.
