Guided, mad-lib style, creative writing story template. Students can create funny or serious news stories depending on what they write.
Blanks are provided throughout the template for 'what happened, who, what, where, when' and more. They also write about the development of the story. Made for cycle one and two, but great for differentiation in older cycles.
This lesson can last approximately one hour if students present their news story in front of the class. Great activity to leave with a substitute teacher.
