A Current Event is something that is happening somewhere in the world NOW! Current Events are news stories that include a title, author, and date of publication. Grade 2 students are doing more than just looking up information, they are asking, “What is happening in our world TODAY?”
Each week two students choose an article to present from newspapers, magazines and Internet sites. Students read the article and then use our Current Events Note Taking Form to answer questions like Who, What, When, Where and Why. Students include their opinion about the article and then present their information to the rest of the class.
“My opinion is that they should decrease the number of these snakes in Southern Florida.”
Aliyah stated the following, “Honey is good for you and when you are sick you should always have honey like me.”
Aliyah went above and beyond today as she included handout information for students to take home to read more about the benefits of honey. Aliyah also brought samples of honey for each student to have a taste!
After presenting their information, both Yusra and Aliyah answered questions from the rest of the class regarding the information they presented from their articles.
