The World News Crossword (September 17th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (September 17th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (September 17th, 2017) is a simple crossword based on last week's news events. There are THREE more FREE crosswords based on cities and countries around the world. The World News Crossword (September 17th, 2017) is a great activity for supporting literacy, logic, and research skills. It quietly helps students with handwriting issues and it sneakily encourages students to learn more about their word and to discuss why... Why? Why did the UN impose more sanctions on North Korea? Why did Russia suggest UN peacekeepers for Crimea? Why are Australian landowners encouraging Australians to eat kangaroos? And why is Amsterdam's government wanting to discourage tourism? These are just some of the discussions that will pop out of this week's crossword. Or maybe they'll ask where? Where is Lahore? Sri Lanka? New Zealand? South Africa? Myanmar? North Korea? Paris? Barcelona? Crimea? It's a pdf so it can be downloaded quickly, saved to a flash drive, opened and printed quickly for use at a moment's notice.

Hand out the worksheet and have students work in pairs to fill it in. They need to talk to other people in the class to find out anything that they may have in common. Works well for a speaking activity. Is a lot of fun!

The World News Crossword (September 3rd, 2017)

The World News Crossword (September 3rd, 2017)

The World News Crossword (September 3rd, 2017) is a interesting and very engaging resource for students from age 10 or so upwards (all the way up to teachers in staff meetings). It's a crossword based on the events in last week's news. There are three more crosswords in the resource based on countries - Bhutan, Belgium, and Bangladesh. The resource is ideal for PSHE, SEN, Geography, Economics, English... and for when you're substituting a class that doesn't have enough work. The World News Crossword works very well as small group activities because it's not really about solving the puzzle - it's really bout the discussion that occurs about the news. Why is North Korea firing missiles and making threats to the US and Japan? Why recall half a million pacemakers for weak cybersecurity (who would attack a pacemaker)? Why would Croatia's capital remove the name of Josip Tito from it's central plaza? And what's so important about the Taj Mahal? It's a pdf document so it's quick to download and print. Store it on a USB drive and you have several excellent lessons and homework in your pocket. Brilliant! Over 1200 people died in flooding across India, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Pakistan. About 50 people were killed in flooding in Texas. (Trump continues to deny climate change.) Mo Farah won his last 5000 metre race in Zurich. Spain beat Italy and Wales beat Austria in their World Cup footy qualifiers. New Zealand beat England in the Women's World Cup Final. Serena Williams had a baby girl. Fabio Fognini was kicked out of the US Open for abusing the umpire. Germany opened a facility that houses the world's most powerful x-ray laser in an underground bunker near Hamburg and Kim Jong-un announced he has a nuclear bomb that can be attached to an ICBM. And almost half a million pacemakers were recalled in the US because of weak cybersecurity. Government archaeologists told a court in India that the Taj Mahal is a Muslim mausoleum not a Hindu Temple. Kenya's Supreme Court ruled the recent presidential elections invalid. A malaria parasite crossed from howler monkeys to humans in Brazil. Turley's president accused Myanmar of genocide against the Rohingya people.
