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.

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.

The World News Crossword (August 27th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (August 27th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (August 27th, 2017) is a simple resource made up of one crossword based on last week's news events and three more crosswords each focussing on a country. This week its Algeria, Azerbaijan, and Japan. And there might even be another crossword for special teachers and their students. The resource is a pdf document so it's quick to download, store on a USB/flash drive, ready to print at a moment's nice. It's ideal then for substitute lessons, PSHE lessons, English, Geography, Economics, Business... Let's be clear, it's a great resource for any subject at almost any level. Students will learn about the world (their world) and some of the events that shaped last week. Why did Brazil open up national reserves to mining companies? Why would a teenager try to smuggle a Bengal tiger cub from Mexico to USA? Will the EU allow Bayer to take over Monsanto? Did the UN really send a warning to the US about racial discrimination? Why were there big storms in Macau and the US? (Oh and it rained in Ireland, but that's not normally news, is it? So why was it news?) The New Zealand men's rugby team beat long-time rivals Australia on the same day that the New Zealand women's rugby team won the World Cup. The ex-governor of the Norfolk Islands recommended Norfolk Island become part of New Zealand and not Australia. Qatar's government passed a law limiting the working hours for domestic staff and India passed a law banning instant divorces. An Australian politician proposed a national day for indigenous Australians - to be on Queen's Birthday. Really?

The World News Crossword (August 20th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (August 20th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (August 20th, 2017) is a simple resource made up of a crossword (with answers) based on last week's news events - and THREE bonus crosswords. This week's bonus puzzles focus on Argentina, China, and New Zealand. The World News Crossword is reasonably simple to complete because its purpose is to engage students with their world and some of the many events that affect them. A two-week-old wildfire in Greenland. A terror attack in Barcelona. A baby dolphin killed because of tourists' curiosity. Venezuela went from bad to worse. 3000 Syrians returned home from Lebanon. Saudi Arabia negotiated to rebuild Iraq's cities. The US president used Twitter, again. Floods affected millions of people in India, Bangladesh, and Nepal. A tortoise escaped in Japan. But it's less about what happened last week than why and hopefully, if students work in groups to solve these puzzles, they'll chat among themselves about the stories in the puzzle. Why did Rwandans vote their president back for a third term? Why should Zimbabwe's Grace Mugabe escape prosecution for assaulting a model in a hotel in South Africa? Why is the US investigating China's intellectual property policies? And what's so wrong with an Australian politician holding dual-citizenship?

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?
