    6th Grade Greek and Roman Newspapers!

    6th Grade Students created Greek and Roman Newspapers using the Google Sites Program.  Each class was first divided into two teams.  After an editor in chief was selected, the remaining students were given topics to investigate in a small group.  Each group researched relevant topics of the Greek and Roman times and then created Google Sites pages to display their topic.  Topics include; Travel and Leisure, World News, Editorials, Sports, and Entertainment.

    Each Groups Sites page was then connected to the front pages of  Greek and Roman Times.  Students can then easily navigate between newspaper pages.

    When finished with their Sties page students wrote a script of their topic for a Greek and Roman broadcast.  These broadcasts were filmed in the Flipgrid Website.
