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.}

Common Core Standards:


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


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


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

**Please note: This individual current event is also sold as part of the Social Studies Current Event Pack AND the Science & Social Studies Current Event Bundle.
