PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Current events set of 12 graphic organizers (templates) will help differentiate current events topics and give the teacher and student a broad range of choice when choosing news stories to research. The four activities expand the possibilities even more!

The twelve current event topics, one for each organizer are: Entertainment, the Environment, History, Political, Science, Sports, Technology, Weather, Your Community, Your Country, Your State, and the World. Students choose a current events topic and complete the organizer. They can use the internet, television, newspapers, or magazines - this is up to you the teacher.

A Canadian version of this resource is available as well and can be seen here: Current Events Canada Version

Also included are four activities:

---Discussion Topics (seven) which can be used how you wish, either in groups or with the class, or even as short essay assignments;

---Compare and Contrast in which students choose two current event topics from different fields to complete the organizer;

---Using a News Website (approved by you) and evaluating content;

---and “Present Your Topic” in which students present their summarized current event topic to two other students and an adult (e.g. a family member or another teacher).

This product does not include an answer key as all activities are subjective. It does include a Table of Contents. Please have a look at the preview!

All colored graphics used print out well in black and white.
