Last year my fourth grade class started a Global Newspaper among ten other schools across the globe. We were able to publish five amazing editions of the global newspaper last year. This year the fourth grade would like to continue the project of publishing a global newspaper which highlights special events in classroom and community around the globe.
The way the project works is my students send out an email requesting articles from participating schools and give a deadline to have the article emailed back to our classroom. In your classroom have the students write a news article and take pictures. The article can be about a special event in your classroom, school or community. Also attach a photo if possible to the article. Once our classroom receives the articles and pictures, it will take my students about 1 to 2 weeks to publish a newspaper. We will email a rough draft to all the schools. If there is typo or misprint let us know and the students will fix it. Once everything looks great my kids publish the final edition and send it to every school.
If you like to participate this year, may you please send my classroom an email letting us know you are interested. My students can't wait to hear from all the different schools and are very excited about the newspaper this year. If you have any questions or suggestions let me know. Also spread the word to other schools you know. The more diversity the better the newspaper will be.
