Bell Work

News Around the World

Provide newspapers for the class. Provide a large laminated world map - tape it to the board. Have students find articles from all over the world. Have them write their name on the map by the corresponding country. When bell work is over, have students summarize what is going on around the world. You may choose to add to the map for several weeks and incorporate it into other activities.
