This item builds upon my free item, Science in the News Article Find. After working with the Article Find Activity, students will use the rest of the document to analyze a current event news article. Students will discuss what the current event entails, who is involved and/or impacted, what facts are presented, what implications the article has on future scientific endeavors, and what their thoughts and opinions are on the article.
-Two versions of an article find worksheet to help students choose current events that are grade level appropriate and relevant (one with grade points one without)
-A four page worksheet asking for reference information, background information, article analysis, and student opinions.
-A teacher resource page with links to science current event news sites and tips for using this activity with all students, including differentiation for low and high readers.
