Notice Board – Current Affairs

This year I created a new homeschool notice board for my middle schooler.

20140220_164913

I attached wooden clipboards and clips so that we can quickly change/ update or add new information.

There are 4 clipboards for ~

  1. Current Affairs 
  2. Famous Artist
  3. Nature Study
  4. Bible Memory Verse

I included 2 smaller clips for Common Latin Words and the Famous Composer.

In this and a few following posts, I will discuss more on each section and share free downloads that I created for our notice board.

Today ~ Current Affairs

symbols current affairs

Your free download ~ Current Affairs Calendar Map & Symbols Sampler

Included in this download is ~

  1. 2 World maps
  2. Symbols for the natural and man-made disasters
  3. Colour-code to highlight different categories of the events
  4. Blank calendar pages which you can use again every year

We fit in this ‘minor’ activity on our “Tuesday – Timeline” day or our “Wednesday – World” studies day according to our 1-More-Thing “Theme of the Day”

It is in doing these extras that your children will have a rich and rewarding education, and it doesn’t have to take long at all.  Moms can quickly write in the latest events for younger children and let them find the country or location on the world map and draw in the symbol.  It is quick and only takes a moment!

May you be blessed in your Geography and World Studies!

Update:

Several readers asked where they could find current affairs and news.  Here are some excellent resources ~ 

Much Grace, Nadene

    • @Michelle, because I read daily news on my smart phone, we mostly work from this medium. Towards the end of the year there are several websites which give an overview. This is something that should develop naturally and which builds a wonderful general knowledge.

    • @mummy2six, thanks for writing! It is wonderful to keep the younger children in touch with a world map. Some moms use their current affairs studies as a point of prayer. We trust and pray that your son is kept safe in the Lord!

  1. My boys would love to fill out this chart (They’re really into this stuff – lol), but there are so many websites to find this info that it is rather overwhelming. Can you recommend a website or two? Can you share what you recorded for January and February so far? Thank you!

  2. Hi Nads, thanks for this. We have been relying on Gavin’s brain (or is that a sponge in my husbands head) at dinner time to bring us up to date. But he has so much info in there that we get a little lost sometimes. I think this post has given me the direction we need right now and Gav can fill in our blanks!
