Current Events: Use this project all year long! During the first semester, have students link current events to the 5 THEMES OF GEOGRAPHY. Then in the second semester, your students will see the GLOBAL CONNECTIONS in our world and/or the ways in which PAST DISCOVERIES have impacted discoveries and accomplishments of today. Handouts, rubrics, and an example for the first semester are included.
