Description: THE FURRY NEWS is an entertaining look at the ins and outs of creating a newspaper. Nationally syndicated cartoonist Ray Billingsley shares his inspirations with viewers and demonstrates the process involved in creating his cartoon strip, "Curtis".
Activity Suggestion: For an especially fun project have the class choose a topic and then create a sentence about the topic using words cut out of the newspaper (use words in larger type such as those that make up the headlines). These can be displayed on an "Extra, Extra Read All About It!" bulletin board.
