In this lesson, from the New York Times Learning Network, students consider some of the significant events that shaped 2004 through a year-end news quiz, as well as through news quizzes that they create. They then make predictions for some of the events that were in the news at the end of 2004 and beginning of 2005 and follow those news stories on an ongoing basis.
