Teaching and Working with Current Events- A New Resource

As I plan out our new year a bit further, I decided to tap more into the boys strengths/interests.  One really big interest they have is current events. Their day is not complete without watching the days "news events".  We often use these as discussion and debate topics at lunch or dinner time. 

Here is a neat site I found to help me tap into current events, its called Student News Daily.  

Just click on the current event and you can see links to print out the post and also use activities to go along with it to be used as a lesson. 

I really love this and plan on using this quite often.

This is so cool, Tracey! I have been trying to implement current events into our days as well. I'm not sure that my kids are as happy about that as your boys are, but I still feel it's important for them to know what is going on in the world around them.

You always find such great resources! Thank you :-)
