This is a newspaper assignment that I gave to my grade 5 students. You can successfully use these resources for grade 3-8, as well as any ESL class, in my opinion.
The bundle includes the following:
1) Microsoft Word newspaper template. Students can just enter their articles and pictures in the text/image boxes
2) Powerpoint presentation discussing the parts of a newspaper
3) 2 different rubrics you can use to assess your students.
