This is a graphic organizer I made for upper elementary and middle years students to research current events on the Internet. The organizer works for both English and Social Studies. My classroom has a computer station, so I just post the appropriate websites next to it. I use mainly local newspapers and national news websites. You may need to preteach the skills necessary to go on the sites.
CURRENT EVENTS; INTERNET; COMPUTERS
Appropriate for grades 5 to 9
