PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

So much happened last week that there has to be three World News crosswords this week.

From last week's news… The little red panda that went missing… Eureka, they found it. A chef constructed a giant gingerbread house in San Francisco. Russia imposed economic sanctions against Turkey. Over 100 world leaders met in Paris to discuss climate change and what they can do about it. A piece of a rocket was fished out of the sea near the Scilly Isles. The Pope visited Africa, Queen Elizabeth II visited Malta, and Prince Harry fell off his polo pony in South Africa (twice).

The puzzles can be used as an individual or small-group activity by middle and high school students. I think they work best when 2-4 students work together, competing against other groups (because kids can't help being competitive). Apple and Samsung are spending bazillions of dollars convincing the kids to use smartphones and so I suggest teachers embrace that, and let the students use their phones to explore last week's news events.

Let the kids chat about the clues and what they think about the news stories. Copy some of the puzzles and have them in your bag for when you have to substitute for a sick colleague.

And don't forget to come back next Sunday evening for next week's World News Crosswords.
