These printable current events worksheets
This PDF download contains twelve pages.
Within the pages, students will be looking to identify the following:
- Event date
- Reason the event is important
- Details of what happened
- Picture of event
- Details about event
- Connections (students can be encouraged to think about text to text, text to world or text to self)
- Fact & opinion
- Summary writing
Some of the pages include spaces for words and pictures. In these spaces encourage children to simply share their thoughts. These pages might resemble sketch notes pages where words and pictures are randomly scattered around the page.
These pages will be meaningful because they encourage children to respond in different ways. Not only will they be reading and processing what they read, they will also be writing and drawing about their reading.
