PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Great activity for any time of the year! Make math (or any other subject) relatable by showing your students math is all around them! Use news stories to introduce concepts to your class or have them find interesting stories on their own. Show your students how important the concepts they learn in school are by showing them how the concepts emerge in stories around the world!

News nowadays is presented in many forms. Let your students use whatever media site is interesting to them. Just have them print out the page of the story and attach it to their work. These activities are designed to make your students aware of what’s going on in the world and see that math (and other subjects) is in everything that happens.

This resource was designed to be versatile. You can use it all year round, across the different subject matters, and in many forms. You can use it as a worksheet, as a reusable template with a plastic sleeve (SmartPal, Communicators), in an interactive notebook, or as a foldable. The templates were specifically designed to be folded into a Poof Book. You can learn how to make a Poof Book on my website, methodtomymathness.com, or check out my Poof Book Instructional Guide and Template!

Included are:

Current Events News Infographic
This printout provides information about the different types of news and the reasons why a story is important enough to be considered newsworthy. You can use this printout to discuss the types of news we read about and have a poll to see which type of news your students think is the most important. You can have a discussion about what makes a news article important and what makes us care about a certain story.

Current Events What’s in the News Template
This template is made for any subject! You can use it with your STEM or STEAM curriculum to make science and math relatable with news stories. You can provide your students with a specific news article or have them find their own to write about. This template can be used with the Current Events News Infographic.

Current Events Math in the News Template
This template is just like the What’s in the News Template but designed specifically for math. Included in this template is a part where your students have to create a word problem with the information given to them in the news article.
