Current Events: 12/7

A continuation of stories from previous weeks:

Occupy Protests:
People vs. Profits? -
Dozens arrested in Occupy D.C. protests -
Read the Occupy D.C. website... interesting to read this side -
70 arrested as police clear Occupy camp in San Francisco and dismantle around 100 tents -
*For older students: Are Occupy Wall Street and corporate fat cats the same? (Parents, please use discretion when watching this video) -

Newly Elected Egyptian Government:
Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood says it does not seek power struggle with ruling military council -
Muslim Brotherhood top winner in Egyptian election -

Political cartoons are an interesting way to think look at current events... many themes probably go right over the students heads?
Political Cartoons - 

I'm interested to know what you think about using these!

Thanks ~ your links are great! I recently thought, "How do we keep record of all that is happening around the world?" and made a free download - Calendar and world map of major events in 2011. We now can keep track through the year of natural disasters, weather events, political events and other current events.

I like your idea of keeping track with a map! wonderful. I have downloaded it, and would like to keep a copy in the front leaf of the kids journals to update as they write their "This week in history" entries. :)
