This publication provides teachers with a series of classroom activities that use newspapers as a learning resource and as a tool for instruction. These activities have been taken from other curricula used successfully throughout the country. They were developed with certain objectives and skills in mind, based on content area, by newspapers in conjunction with local school educators. The activities are on reproducible sheets and divided into five categories covering newspaper activities, social studies, science, mathematics, and language arts. Examples of topics, in the order of the listed categories, include activities involved in the study of: (1) headlines, the index, main idea, games, puzzles, and captions; (2) current events, supply and demand, problem solving, friends, and countries; (3) natural disasters, health, research, appliances, conservation, and weather; (4) metrics, geometric shapes, fractions, sets, and the writing of checks; and (5) root words, alphabetizing, writing, reading limericks, and sentences.
