This article covers lots of information on President Obama’s upcoming schedule so it will still be current tomorrow. Everything is done for you and all you have to do is run it off and hand it out. Let me know if you like this idea, because I might do others for you if enough people are interested. There is a map of Syria with questions so your class will get to know some geography too.
