Newspaper Activities

A few ideas for activities that you can do based on Newspapers.

Who? What? Where? When? Why?

Get the children to look at newspaper stories and find the answers to the five W's of journalistic writing. Give them interesting photos and ask them to make up a newspaper story about the photo. Link your newspaper reports to a history topic (e.g. the Second World War) for added interest. Look at the structure of newspaper reports. Collect together (perhaps for homework) examples of newspaper headlines.
