Hello Grade 6 students. This is a reminder about your ongoing Current Events Scrapbook.
Using print, online news stations, television, radio, and podcasts, students will investigate at least one current event per month relating to Canada and the Global Community.
Relevant articles: those that show Canada’s international involvement in human rights, world health, economy & trade, disaster relief, and the environment.
Step 1 – Monthly – collect any/all of the following:
Print Articles – students should cut out the printed article and attach it to their scrapbook.
Television/Online news articles- students should print the related article off the website channel and attach it to their scrapbook
Audio (radio and podcasts) – students should use the current event graphic organizer to summarize the information and attach it to the scrapbook.
Step 2 – Monthly – Complete a current-events-graphic-organizerfor each article. Present article and summary to peers. Post a copy of the article and summary in a product that appeals to your multiple intelligences (e.g., blog, webpage, Prezi, scrapbook, memory box, time capsule).
⃞ Select an appropriate article showing Canada’s international involvement in human rights, world health, economy & trade, disaster relief, and the environment
⃞ Use the ‘Report on a Current Event’ graphic organizer to plan summary
⃞ Prepare a written summary paragraph using the information from the graphic organizer and explain the significance of the article
