CNN Student News: Daily Activity
PRINT and GO!
-Update...apologies for one error I cannot fix easily. Where you see the list of countries, 'China' is listed twice. The last 'China' should be replaced with 'Russia.' The answer key, found in a separate upload, is correct. Please have students make a quick edit. Thanks!
--Here is the link to use with this activity. The segment runs 10 minutes.
-- This activity is not a general activity. It is specific to the date it airs.
--It can be completed as students watch the 10 minute episode, or students can complete the questions at the end of the episode as a recall activity.
-- The activity prints 2 to a page, so for a class of 30, you need only print 15 copies and cut the paper in half.
-- An answer key is uploaded separately.
--Intentionally, I used narrow margins to fit two copies on each page. The idea behind this is to allow a teacher to use less paper and ink.
-- Have students watch, listen and answer the questions. Some questions are "lower level" and some are "higher-level."
--At the end of the segment, you may want to allow students time to partner-up and discuss/complete the activity.
--As all good teachers do, ask the higher-level questions that get students interested about the world in which they live!
