Fifth graders from West Elementary School recently visited Newsday headquarters. During their visit, they learned more about the five Ws of journalism that include the who, what, when, where and why when reporting.

Among the many highlights of the day, the students got a firsthand view of the studio offices, experienced what it’s like to be a reporter and even participated in a mock emergency press conference.

The field trip coincides with their journalism writing unit where they practice informational writing in meaningful ways that are connected to their school and local communities, write news reports that give details about an event using journalists' writing techniques and write feature articles that teach about topics chosen by the writers.
