The World News Crossword - February 25th, 2018 is FOUR one-page crosswords in one simple PDF. (Solutions included.)
(There are 3 additional crosswords - France 1, France 2, and Egypt - great for Geography and Social Studies.)
The flagship crossword is based on last week's news events. Forest people begged for a ban on the production of palm oil. 17 people died in Mozambique when a city rubbish pile collapsed. And thousands of people in Bali volunteered to clean up beaches and rivers.
Doping in the Olympics and 6 red cards for one Brazilian football team.
And finally, a UN-sponsored ceasefire in Syria (perhaps).
This news crossword is excellent for prompting spirited discussions - why are these events happening? What can be done about them? What can we do about about them?
Crosswords are an excellent tool for encouraging logical thinking and problem-solving, co-operation, research, neat handwriting, correct spelling, and concentration.
