Product Description
Thank you for downloading this freebie! I hope you and your students enjoy interacting with current events in our world. I used this as a “Current Event Friday” activity when I taught ELA and Social Studies in 4th grade. We used https://www.dogonews.com/ to learn about current events that are in kid friendly terms. However, this freebie would be applicable for any kid friendly current event site.

There are 3 different versions to cover the standards below:

-RI3.2
Determine the main idea of a text; recount the key details and explain how they support the main idea.

-RI4.2
Determine the main idea of a text and explain how it is supported by key details; summarize the text.

(There is also an IB version for RL4.2.)

-RI 5.2 Determine two or more main ideas of a text and explain how they are supported by key details; summarize the text.

*There is a rubric for each standard that you may elect to use for grading purposes.

Enjoy!
