Young academics create a current events journal by skimming newspapers for articles that fit defined guidelines for informational texts. After cutting out two articles each week to add to their journals, they write a brief description of the main idea for each story. They also write a brief statement reflecting on the importance of the article. This is a great activity that gets young readers exploring informational texts and can be easily modified for any grade level!
