After students have been introduced to push and pull factors, it is a great opportunity to bring in current events! Let students see what is going on in the rest of the world; a few of my students continue to be empathetic towards Syrian children after doing this activity.
Students will take a journey to Mexico, Syria, Finland, and Texas. Using the four cards provided, which include a map and current event, students will locate the place on their world map and then write about their "experience" on one of four postcards.
This is a student-centered activity which can be done individually or in pairs.
