Product Description

One of the most important life skills we can teach students is how to think critically about new information and to question the sources they come across. This mini-unit is designed to help them evaluate news sources and identify elements of "fake news" sites and what to look for to determine if a site is trustworthy. This unit can be used in social studies or ELA and is a great activity to leave for a sub.
