Great Ideas: Current Events Made Eventful

Current Events Made Eventful

Sixth-grade students select a newspaper or magazine article having to do with some aspect of science: food safety, the environment, space, etc. They record the headline, determine the main idea, and provide supporting-details. They then share with their classmates their reason for choosing the article, which then becomes a basis of class discussion and increases students’ awareness of our world.
