PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Social Studies:
If you like this current event, you'll love the Social Studies Current Event Pack
or the Science AND Social Studies Current Events Bundle!
*Please note: The bonus summarizing guide is only available in the current event bundles.


Need some help with Social Studies? Need an activity to go with that Weekly Reader? Want to integrate reading and social studies?
You are sure to love using social studies current events in your classroom!
Students need to know what is going on in the world around them. Summarizing and making personal connections are important reading skills that students will use while completing their current event.
Students will select an article (website, magazine, newspaper, etc.) and complete the current event form. They will need to read their article carefully (hopefully more than once), determine important key vocabulary words, summarize in their own words, decide on a question they still have, and even try to make personal connections.

{There is a tips page included to get you started and help you show your students where they can find great articles.}
