Today is our first son's birthday. I found this 'old newspaper' generator and threw together a fictitious news article announcing Taylor's birth in 1989. Students can write a short news article on an old topic and paste it in this generator. Printing it out on parchment paper would add an older look. Go to http://www.fodey.com/generators/newspaper/snippet.asp to access this generator. There are lots more generators at this Generator Blog website but be careful they are addicting!
