From the NY TImes "We have created 10 activities for teaching about geography using Times content, all related to the National Geography Standards." Carla Saunders originally scooped this on "History and Geography in the 21st Century Classroom." GENIP recently released (via NCGE) the second edition of "Geography for Life"--the National Geography Standards. Here are some interesting activities using Times articles. I am a fan of the NY Times Learning Network--you can get great ideas here!
