The World News Crossword (November 12th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (November 12th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (November 12th, 2017) is a one-page crossword based on the events of last week's news. The resource includes three more one-page crosswords - on New Zealand, Australia, and Canada. Answers are included. The World News Crossword (November 12th, 2017) is an ideal lesson activity in home room, PSHE, Social Studies, Geography, Economics and SEN lessons. Crosswords challenge students' logic and problem solving skills, research skills, and require neat handwriting. They work well as small group activities or even as homework activities. In this week's puzzle... North Korea’s leader called the US president ‘old’, and so the US president called North Korea’s leader ‘short and fat’. An Australian jockey punched his horse before a race. Japan’s prime minister fell backwards into a bunker while playing golf, an Australian hit a double century in cricket and New Zealand beat France in rugby. And Lewis Hamilton crashed his Mercedes. And Saudi Arabian women will soon be allowed into sports stadiums. Hyderabad banned begging. Uttar Pradesh told Muslim schools to teach English, maths, and science. And in Delhi, a health emergency was declared because of smog. A rocket launch was delayed because a little plane strayed into its air space. And Walt Disney announced three more Star Wars movies will be made. An escaped lynx was killed and a python was found in a drunk German man’s trousers. And zoo staff in Colombia performed root canal surgery on an African elephant.

Secret Mission Cards

Secret Mission Cards

This is a PowerPoint full of cards to be printed and laminated. I utilize in different ways: I give challenging students them so they focus during the lesson; I use them to stretch and challenge individual students; I like to leave them in books when I've marked them; stick them under chairs in the lesson. Some are very creative missions whilst others are used for behavior management. Whenever a student passes their secret mission, they receive a reward - a sweet, postcard or phone call home.

The World News Crossword - Nov 5th, 2017

The World News Crossword - Nov 5th, 2017

The World News Crossword is reviews last week’s news events. It’s simple to complete and can be an individual or a small group activity. It will prompt discussion about the world. This week there were corrupt government officials and NGO workers. There was a deadly typhoon in Vietnam. A new ape discovered in Sumatra and some presidents did some strange things - all of which will stimulate discussions, probably beginning with ‘Why...’ And perhaps students will learn that their smartphones can be used to read the news or research places, people, and events. Last week’s news went from a Yemeni rocket to a German zucchini. Saudi Arabia intercepted a rocket fired from Yemen. They also intercepted some corrupt princes and politicians. Catalonia’s president was sacked, Lebanon’s PM quit, and Iceland’s president asked the Left-Green Movement to form a government. Zimbabwe’s president said he favoured the death penalty and Aung Sun Suu Kyi finally visited the area in her country where genocide has been carried out by her country’s army. The US president’s twitter account was shut down and Michelle Obama advised all children not to tweet everything they think because most of it’s rubbish that no one wants to know about. (I wonder which child she had in mind?) Cockatoos attacked Australia’s already slow broadband, a new species of ape was discovered and immediately declared endangered, and scientists said they now know why 90% of mammoth fossils are from males. Ferrari announced it would report a billion Euro profit, a Hong Kong businessman sold his skyscraper for $US 5 billion, and the Red Cross announced that over $US 2 million was stolen by its staff in Sierra Leone during the Ebola crisis. In France the language authority said no to gender-neutral language, in Switzerland a 7 year old ran away from her parents, took a train to Geneva airport, and snuck onto a plane, and in Germany a man found a bomb in his garden, but it turned out to be a sinister-looking zucchini.
