*This activity may be used alongside digital news sources if you are not able to acquire enough print newspapers.*

*This assignment is a Word document, so it may easily be edited to suit your needs*

In this activity, I provide my students with old newspapers in which they are tasked with looking through for an article that relates to one of the fundamental principles of government.

This particular assignment calls for students to find at least two articles based on two different fundamental principles. Once students find the articles they want to utilize, they are to give a short summary of the article and a reflection on the fundamental principles said article aligns with and why.

Also, if you have enough newspapers to go around between your classes, the second page of the assignment calls for students to cut and paste the articles of their choice and to highlight key information within the article itself.

This activity provides real world application of the fundamental principles to events going on in and throughout the United States. It also encourages the use of analyzing and reinforcing reading comprehension skills.

This assignment can be utilized individually or in pairs.
