The felines of Breaking Cat News take journalistic integrity very seriously. They’re always hunting for the latest scoop––whether it be the latest on the vacuum cleaner or the mysterious smell of bacon in the house, this crew means business. Middle-grade fans of this hard-hitting team will love the chance to bring the characters to life. Cartoonist Georgia Dunn has created a free printable drawing activity so students can learn how to draw and ink their own news crew. With helpful tips scribbled throughout, this activity is the cat’s pajamas!
After middle-graders have assembled the perfect cat cohort, direct them to the next stage: creating their own pet news network. Encourage your students to draw their own pets, as well as the furry friends from Breaking Cat News. After all, Lupin, Elvis, and Puck aren’t the only pets with a penchant for the press! Students should imagine their own funny news story, and then they can share with the class. This free printable drawing activity opens up a world of creative possibilities for pet-lovers.
