Front Page Frenzy!

With the day's front pages and a super-sized board game, students learn about front page elements and purpose.

Front Page Frenzy is the Newseum’s fast-paced game of headlines and deadlines! Teams of would-be reporters scour current newspapers for the key elements of a front page, while racing across a giant game board. Students learn about nameplates, bylines, photo captions and more. Who will be the first to “start the presses?”
