Current Events
Current Events

Students will be presenting current events to friends in class this year.  We
talked about how current events are important events that are happening
now or in the recent past (1 to 10 days).  These events maybe things that
have happened in our school, our town, our state, our country, or our
world.  Great places to find current events are: newspapers (Hartford
Courant, Rivereast, etc..., the internet, magazines (Time for Kids, National
Geographic, etc...) or television.

I have included a picture of a completed note page we did in class below.

Below is a link to several places for current events that are appropriate for
children:
