As a child my favorite parts of the newspaper were the fun stuff like comics, crossword puzzle, word finds, etc. I really didn’t realize the importance of a newspaper in the day to day world! Many of our students are probably just like I was. This unit is a fun “section” of the newspaper and can be used in conjunction with my Let’s Learn About Newspapers
informational unit which covers many Common Core Standards.
Having students become more familiar with a newspaper through fun activities is a great way to introduce them to using a newspaper in their everyday life and gives them another form of reading for a small amount of money.
Just bring some newspapers into the classroom and watch your students get excited.
