Sponge Activities

Where in the World?

Always have the daily newspaper in your room. They provide so many learning opportunities for all ages. Read or skim some of the nationwide articles with your class. Have them locate the countries where incidents are occurring on the map/globe. You may want to have a continuing bulletin board where you post articles and label a map to show where in the world current events are occurring.
