Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To become familiar with various news stories that relate to the federal, state, and local government..

TIME:
No specific amount of time

Class members are directed to look through newspaper articles pertaining to federal, state, and local government. A list of topics that the stories should relate to, such as politics/government officials, the Supreme Court, U.S. relations with other nations, etc., is provided. Students may also use articles not included in the list of topics if approved by the teacher.

For each news story selected (I have my kids select five and have designed this lesson for that number), students read the article in its entirety and summarize the main points. Spaces are provided on the lesson pages for the summaries to be written, along with the headline and date of each article.

This lesson can be used at any time and as often as you want through the school year. When using it, you can tell the students how many days they have to do the news stories.

Teacher Instructions included.
