Happy Mousey Monday to our Cache and Cookies readers!! Mousey wanted to bring to your attention Discovery Education’s weekly series Global Wrap.
Global Wrap is a weekly roundup of the major news reports occurring throughout the world. The series provides an engaging overview of the worldwide current events, the latest international affairs and compelling news stories from around the globe.
You can catch new episodes of Global Wrap on Discovery Education Streaming Plus and Discovery Education Social Studies Techbook every Wednesday afternoon!!! The weekly series is produced by MacNeil/Lehrer Productions exclusively for Discovery Education!
You can access the Global Wrap weekly series by doing a search for Global Wrap and sorting by Recently Added.
You can use the Global Wrap weekly series in the classroom in many ways. Here are two:
1. Instruct each student to select one news story from the week’s Global Wrap to research further. Students can write in-depth articles on the current event to share with the class.
2. Challenge students to complete their own summaries of the week’s major news stories by Tuesday. On Wednesday, compare their summaries with the Global Wrap episodes on Discovery Education.
Please feel free to reach out to us with any comments or feedback @DESupportStars! We would love to know how you used the Global Wrap series in your classroom! Happy Mousey Monday readers! Have a great rest of the week!
