I made a class newspaper with my teenage students today and it was absolutely fab!
I gave them some sections of the paper, but you could do anything you wanted.
I had: Teacher interviews, Group leader interviews, City profile, things to do, excursion and activities, class profile.
You could make it more serious depending on the age and ability of the class.
I assigned two people to be the editors, they had to assign the pages to the other students and one person needed to be a photographer. I gave them a disposable camera and had it developed at lunchtime.
I’m going to bind the original copy to show to other classes as an exmaple, but I photocopied each student a copy to take home with them so they have a permanent reminder of their time here.
Maybe this would be a good creative project for your class to work on?
