Mayan Newspaper Project
Headlines! By writing a newspaper article for the pretend Mayan News, students familiarize themselves with journalism and how to write headlines.
Instructions: Headline editors, not reporters, often write newspaper headlines. Pretend that you are a headline editor for the Mayan News. Your words, or glyphs, will be read by thousands of sports fans.
This one-page engagement activity gives the students an interesting fact about the Mayans and an application of the interesting fact in a creative manner.
