The students in Mrs. Hill’s fifth grade reading class are working on an after-novel study project.  Students are acting as new journalists for the De Frie Danske – The Free Danes Newspaper that was discussed in our novel, Number the Stars.  Students have been appointed to write the next months edition.  They are informing the people of the actions of the Nazi soldiers and Germany.  They are writing several articles to connect to the fictional components of the story with the real components of WWII and this time in history.  Students are using a newspaper template, which is part of the Pages software on our student laptops,  to create the articles.
