Students become reporters as they research a Greek hero. This activity works well with my Myths- Parts I,II, and III, since it focuses only on heroes.
This newspaper template can be used as a two-page assignment or a three-page assignment, depending on how much time and effort you expect from your students. Each section of the newspaper is labeled as to purpose. Students also use critical thinking skills as they determine what might be bought, sold or advertised in ancient Greek times, and what form of money would be used. Tell them to research those things! This activity is formatted for 11” x 14” copy paper. The larger size is much more impressive as a finished product, but you should be able to set your printer to print out an 8.5 by 11 version if you want. Also included in the packet are student handouts and a grade rubric.
