Play: Say to girls: "This is a co-Operative Memory Game: I have given you all the same newspaper. I want you to study this page which has (7,[editor's note: the number of girls in Wendy's unit]) ads, stories etc, known in newspaper language as a "Lay-Out" or "Proof" page. You have 3 minutes to study it carefully. I want you to reproduce my page without looking at it again. You have 10 minutes to finish your "Proof".

Before Hand: Make a master Proof page....
