Yearbook page ideas – News and Headlines (part 1)

News and headline round-ups are popular yearbook pages, often included in school yearbooks in different forms.

News and headline yearbook pages generally consist of things that have taken place throughout your time at school. You could include all of the years you were at school, or just have the years you started and/or finished. Some examples of the type of things you could include are shown below (next week we’ll be posting a list of actual events from the last few years you could use – you can fill in 2013 as the year progresses):

  • Top 10 news stories of the year
  • Celebrity news/gossip
  • Top singles, films, YouTube videos, books
  • Latest crazes/fashions
