In this activity students are challenged to write a short piece of news using a set of pre-established words.
Materials needed: random pictures and words cut out from magazines
Explain that students are going to be journalists for a day: they have to write a short piece of news! Give each student a magazine picture and a set of cut-out words (about 5) and tell them they have 10-15 minutes to write the news contextualizing the given words. As a follow-up, students can display their works on the wall so that everyone can read them and vote for the most interesting story.
