have them lay them out on a big board or on several poster boards. Don’t
glue them on until the entire newspaper is laid out.
Begin by creating a name for your newspaper. Type out the name of your
newspaper, in big bold letters and place it on the board where you think
it should go. Use tape or sticky clay to place articles and pictures on your
poster board, until you are done with all of them. By using this method of
placement, you can move them around as needed.
