Product Description
This is a half page prompt to be glued to the inside of a journal. This is a great activity for students that finish their classwork early and need to be challenged.

Students are asked to read a current event article online/from a newspaper. (I have mine go to the student-friendly www.timeforkids.com but any current event article would work.) They are then asked to summarize the article in 7-8 sentences, draw the "Unanswered Questions" icon and list 3 questions they have after reading the article, "Multiple Perspectives" icon and talk about how they felt about the people and events in 2 sentences, and, in no more than 3 words, come up with a theme and draw the "Big Idea" icon.
