This is a fabulous back to school activity, which can also be used at other times. You can use the picture file, which I used a newspaper generator (sample image) to create to hook the students into the activity. Then have the students read four interview accounts from eye witnesses and complete the article.
This is good to use at the beginning of the school year because the eye witnesses encountered a Circus that went wrong because of the lack of planning, procedures, and organization. The tickets had no seat numbers, there weren't parking directions, no presale of the tickets, etc.
I required the students to identify the problem that occurred, the reason it happened and how it could have been prevented.
Excellent activity any time, the kids really enjoyed being detectives!
