This marvelous FREEBIE is fun and challenging, providing a way for students to apply their knowledge of text structures through the use of QR Codes. These codes are linked to kid-friendly HIGH INTEREST news articles online. Students match each article to one of the main text structures: description, sequence, chronological, cause/effect, problem/solution, compare/contrast, and persuasive.
This news layout has a lot of empty space, but the format of the article on the page makes it look very interesting. The letters ending up in a pile is the most clever format I have seen for a newspaper layout design.
