Here's a great new twist on fairy tales. Students create a news report based on the events of a fairy tale! They act as anchor, field reporter, or witness to the events. This is a wonderful activity for students in grades 5-12. It helps them to see how to present facts without bias, think about how a witness might see an event, and develop confidence in front of an audience in a nonthreatening presentation. Complete the newscast with costumes and props to make a great afternoon of news reporting!
