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 events.
Students will select an article (website, magazine, newspaper, etc.) and complete the appropriate student page for that topic. 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.

Included in this pack are 5 printable student pages & a BONUS SUMMARIZING GUIDE (new)!

♥ My Community
♥ All About America
♥ Around the World

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