Newspaper Generator

I just came across a fun new tool! This Newspaper Generator allows you to type in your own story, paper name, and date and creates a real looking newspaper clip. Here is a quick sample I made.
This could be used for so many things. To teach about different purposes of writing, how to write informational text, how to present a historical event from the point of view of that era, how to write op/ed articles, and so forth. There are so many different ways to use this. It could even tie in with the Black History biographies I have been doing as students could do an article about something their person did or an interview with them. It is a great way to reinforce facts, beginning, middle, and end, informative writing, and more. I can't wait to show some of the teachers at school. 

How would you use this?
