Every good travel notebook needs photographs and news clippings. As the scrapbook artist, you will find pictures that could depict our family's trip to Birmingham. You will use copies of actual photographs to illustrate the events that might have happened on our trip. You will also need to read newspaper articles/stories about the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church bombing that answer the basic journalism questions of who, what, when, where, why, and how.

Complete these tasks:

1. Use WordArt and create a title for your scrapbook.

2. Capture a minimum of 15 (maximum 20) photos showing a variety of people and events that occurred during the time period of the Civil Rights Movement, 1960-1970. Each image MUST be cited by pasting the URL beneath the photo.

3. Explain each photo IN YOUR OWN WORDS, minimum three sentences per photo.

4. Write a newspaper article explaining the bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church as if YOU were an eyewitness. This should be long enough to answer the basic journalism questions of who, what, when, where, why, and how.
