March is Newspapers in Education Month

Join the millions of teachers worldwide who use newspapers to teach lessons that are relevant and current.

trainThe Newspaper Train

Make a train on a bulletin board and have students “load” each car. Label the boxcars Antonyms, Homonyms, Synonyms, Prefixes and Suffixes. Have students find examples of each in the newspaper, cut them out and glue them onto the appropriate boxcars.

Complete the Headline

Headlines in the newspaper are not always complete sentences. Have students look for ten headlines in the newspaper. Write ten headlines on the board and then have each student write them out as complete sentences.
