World News Crossword for the week ending October 11th, 2015 is a simple activity for middle and high school students (and their teachers) to research and learn about the world's news events from last week. Clues and answers relate to current events from all over the world including news events in sports, science, economics, business and politics. An answer key is provided.
This week's puzzle includes a BONUS puzzle is made of the same news items, but the clues are worded differently and the answers are different. I suggest using the main crossword at the start of the week and the bonus puzzle at the end of the week, or even next week as a review or a refresher or a reminder.
Children love doing crosswords. They don't like leaving the puzzles unfinished. The puzzles are versatile: as a morning home-room activity, in-class discussion starters, homework activities, group projects, internet research activity... You know how kids are desperate to use their smartphones in class? This gives them a positive way to do just that.
