A genuine newspaper from your hometown? If you teach English abroad, your students find it fascinating.

In this Hometown Newspaper activity, you first remove all the headlines. With only the articles, students have to match the headline with the article.

In the next part of this newspaper activity, it’s question and answer time. How’s the weather? What sports are popular? What made the front page? Write it down. Talk about it.

What’s different about it? For example, my students were surprised to see pictures in colors for my hometown newspaper.
