The World News Crossword (August 6th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (August 6th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (August 6th, 2017) is a simple crossword based on last week’s news events. There are three BONUS crosswords included - all with the answers of course. The resource is a pdf document so it's quick and easy to download and store on a flash drive. What happened in our world last week? The Philippines president called the North Korean leader a ‘chubby fool’ for firing rockets. China and India are involved in a border dispute. An Indian boxer beat a Chinese boxer but offered to give the title back to the Chinese boxer as a peace gesture. GM recalled almost a million trucks. Pearson, the educational publisher announced it would cut 10% of of its jobs. Ethnic violence in the DRC resulted in more than 250 people killed. Australia’s greenhouse emissions rose to their highest level ever. Dutch police arrested criminals who stole iPhones from a moving truck. A heatwave spread across Europe and monsoon flooding killed hundreds of people in India. Police in Sierra Leone banned groups of joggers. It’s not so much what happened but why, and hopefully this is what the students will be talking about as they complete the crossword and go to their next lesson. Why did only two cities apply to host the 2024 and 2028 Summer Olympics? Why is the Polish government still allowing logging in its ancient forest? Why are George and Amal Clooney helping 3000 Syrian children attend school in Lebanon? And why was Martin Shkreli the most hated man?

The World News Crossword (July 29th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (July 29th, 2017) is a simple crossword based on last week's news events. But wait! There's more... three more crosswords. There's one about Australia. There's one about the USA. And there's another on countries and their famous landmarks. In last week's news... China's president announced that everyone in the Chinese army has to support the communist party. Over 20,000 people were evacuated because of a fire at a concert in Spain. There were forest fires along the French coast. There was flooding in China and New Zealand and a suspicious water shortage in the Murray-Darling river basin area that the government is investigating. Pakistan's prime minister was made to resign because of dishonest activity revelled in the Panama Papers. North Korea fired another rocket into the Japan Sea. The US Navy fired some rockets near an Iranian ship. And the Sri Lankan navy rescued an elephant that had been swept out to sea. And a few days later they rescued two more. There's a serious international dispute brewing because Gran Canaria imported sand from Western Sahara - the UN has rules about trading with countries that are occupied (Western Sahara is occupied by Morocco). And the Dumbest News Story Ever Award goes to the people in Rotorua (New Zealand) who have imported mud from South Korea and used $NZ100,000 given by government, i.e. the taxpayer, to do so. It's for a festival. It's mud. $100,000 of taxpayer money??? So... a crossword all about last week's news and a few other very handy resources to have in your pocket. It's all one pdf document so it can be downloaded and stored on a flash drive, ready to print and use in a flash!

The World News Crossword (July 2nd, 2017)

The World News Crossword (July 2nd, 2017)

This eleven-page packet of crosswords begins with a crossword dedicated to last week's world news and the events behind the news. There are several other crosswords that can be used at any time to support lessons or to use in emergencies, or as homework language activities (or in staff meetings). I've found crosswords work well as small group activities, especially the world news crossword, because it generates positive discussions about the world events. Now here's the thing... I know they're good because my students INSIST on getting all the answers and they chatter for the rest of the day about the news events. India's complicated tax system is being replaced by a goods and services tax. That's boring, but the world shortage of a special antibiotic isn't boring. It's potentially very serious. And so is drug-resistance. New Zealand's customs impounded. shipment of Weetabix, possibly because the British Lions beat the All Blacks. But Emirates Team New Zealand won the America's Cup. An Australian boy was flown almost 1000 km because of an accident with fireworks and an eye injury - not the best way fro him to celebrate Northern Territory Day. 60% of British people want to retain EU citizenship and 75% of the world don't have confidence in the US president's leadership skills (and yes, I know, that means 25% do). A study has found that a commercially produced pesticide has a significant harmful effect on bees. The chemical company thinks more research is needed. A study found that immigrant parakeets are liked by the UK public but that they are causing harm. (Guess what? The study's lead researcher was Mr Parrot. Really!!) And yes, the answers are included. There are some crosswords about landmarks or special places in the world... Uluru, The Eiffel Tower, Stonehenge, The Grand Canyon, Banff National Park, The Victoria Falls... and maybe these puzzles will get the students using their smartphones with an atlas or map rather than WhatsApp or FB. There are some Maps crosswords taken from a KS3 Geography booklet that's also available on TES, and a crossword about Climate Change - what causes it, what are the effects, and what can we do about it? So... a crossword all about last week's news and a few other very handy resources to have in your pocket (it's all PDF so you can download it to a USB drive)...

The World News Crossword (June 25th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (June 25th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (June 25th, 2017) is a simple crossword based on last week's news events. This week there are THREE BONUS puzzles that can be saved to a USB drive and stuffed into your pocket ready to be used at a moment's notice. Perfect for emergencies. The World News Crossword prompts students to discuss news events around the world. Brexit. Qatar. The White House. Climate change. The Middle East. The Great Barrier Reef. And maybe they'll ask where Sichuan is. Or where exactly is North Korea. Or perhaps they'll ask why - why is it a big deal that a small rural New Zealand newspaper publish the names of drunk drivers? Or that French bus drivers who aren't allowed to wear shorts chose to wear skirts? And then a group of UK school kids did the same - and how did these stories relate to climate change? The News puzzle can be used with young or old students, individually or in small groups, in class or for homework. The three bonus puzzles can be used when substituting for absent colleagues or during rainy lunch times.
