This month's writing is a NEWSPAPER ARTICLE with the headline,
'Mysterious Alien Craft Lands in Terrassa'.
Write a story in the style of a newspaper article about what would happen if this were true.
Use the '5 W's' to make your article interesting:
WHAT? --What happened?
WHEN? --When did it happen?
WHERE? --Where in Terrassa did this happen?
WHY? --Why is this important for people to know?
WHO? --Who saw it? Who was affected? (Use quotes from 'interviews!')
There is also a space for you to add a picture.
You can draw it, cut it out from a magazine or newspaper, or print it from the internet.
