Here are 14 Ready to Use Current Events Activities. There are 12 Current Events worksheet and graphic organizers that can be used with any article. There is also a Current Events Sharing form for students to use with an article that will be shared with the class. In addition, I threw in a Newspaper Scavenger Hunt just for fun.
These can be used when you are reading an article as a class or for individual selections. They could also be used with Time for Kids and Weekly Reader articles. With a bit of tweaking, many of them could be used for other nonfiction selections as well.
