Learn about Printing a Paper with the Community Helper for N8:00 PM
Since it is a small paper it is actually printed off site, but we could see the computers that everyone uses to type up articles.
Then we got to see some of the old equipment. This is like a giant camera that took a picture of the page (you can see a page on the platform).
We were also fortunate in seeing the paper boy this week. We got to watch him throw a newspaper towards our neighbors house, and Bria informed me she wanted to do that!
When we got home I made them a little bin that was shredded newspaper with stamps mixed in. We talked about how hard it would have been to get news to travel before there was anyway to type it. How everything would have had to be hand written, so newspapers really weren't feasible.
None of the newspapers made any sense of course, but Bria did tell me hers was about a robber. We also got word that everyone enjoyed the cookies!
