A creative writing newspaper project in which students design and write the front page of an imagined newspaper from the Australian Gold Rush era.
This teaching resource is a writing project that allows students to apply their knowledge and understanding of the Australian Gold Rush when creating the front page of a newspaper of the time. Students will create articles, commentate on social issues and advertise products from the gold rush era of the mid-1800s. This creative writing project helps students exercise their ability to empathise with Australian gold miners and to visualise and contemplate their lives and needs.
This resource is included in Teach Starter’s Australian Gold Rush unit.
