I have used newspaper  as a tool in my social science class to show how perspective changes while  writing history. I made students collect newspaper  article from different newspapers during elections on Modi, the BJP prime  ministerial candidate. The excercise was a big success .

Another interesting activity that i gave grade 6 students was that to prepare thematic newspaper. The topic was old stone age.As publishers of stone age period students had designed a newspaper which had advertisement for tolet Caves, featured articles on "Discovery of Fire", elections reports for clan leader .This particular excercise was a big hit and the the newspaper was called paleolithic Times.History especially the ancient period can be boring with too many facts. It can be made interesting by these kind of projects.Chandra Sivakumar
