Writing newspaper articles?

Has anybody had their dc write newspaper articles for writing? I'm thinking of doing this with my kids to change things up a bit and introduce them to newspapers. We don't have a subscription so I thought I'd start by buying a paper for a couple weeks and reading through with my kids. Then I'd have them try their hand at writing their own articles, perhaps putting together some sort of "school paper" as a project they can do together. I can see them really enjoying this.


My other thought would be to have my oldest rewrite some of what she's reading in SOTW3 in a newspaper article format.


However, I don't really know where to start to teach my kids *how* to write a good newspaper article. Are there any good (and hopefully free) resources to teach this?


Anybody care to share what you've done in your homeschool?
