One vital aspect of being a successful reporter is learning how and where to find factual information. With this activity, students will use any source that they can, i.e. the internet, the telephone, in-person interviews, etc., to figure out the needed information. An answer key is included.
This product offers students the chance to exhibit a number of reporting skills. Although I use this activity for a Journalism 1 class, teachers could also use this in any language arts class to reinforce a lesson on facts vs. opinions or on research techniques.
