Newspaper Template

A major part of my social studies curriculum is the study of different Americans who worked to expand the rights and freedoms of many different people.  My students always really enjoy studying about these Americans, and I try to incorporate many different activities to make this unit interesting and relevant to my students.  I know last year I wrote about my students' Famous Americans book they made that incorporates a lot of art into this unit.  Another small thing that I like to do is have my students write newspaper articles about one of the people they are studying.  The picture below is of one of my student's articles on Frederick Douglass.  You can click on the picture to grab a newspaper template for your classroom.  They're great, because they work well with almost any topic.



I also wanted to let those of you who've been using the weekly word problems know that the February word problems are ready!  I actually started them with my students today.

Your blog is very inspirational and so are the wonderful things you make for your classroom. I just created my own teaching blog and aspire to one day be as good of a teacher AND blogger as you! I'm still in college, but what better time than the present to be taking in all of the wonderful ideas around me! Thanks for all that you do!
