This activity is wonderful for Current Issues or Events classes. It encourages students to use the internet resources in a meaningful way by allowing them to find something they want to try and to share their results with the class.
They use a news or social media site in order to find ideas or projects they want to try.
Students appreciate the break from more serious topics studied in Current Issues classes, and the chance to pursue something of their choice that is currently being shared on news or social media sites.
Teacher Notes included.
