Yearbooks don't have to be only about clubs & sports. Document aspects of daily life and add community-building content to your yearbook. Here are a few examples...
|The Classroom Cookbook|
Ask your students to share their favourite family recipe. Host a baking contest (at home or as a fundraising bake sale) then share the recipes for the winning entries in the yearbook. Ask each class to come up with a special school cafeteria dish they would enjoy. Make a Lunchtime Special page, showcasing your students' favourite homemade lunches.
Get students to submit their best photo taken at school - architecture/school grounds, portraiture, still life, school spirit. You can propose a theme, or just ask for their best pics.
Give your school a context in its neighbourhood by including a pictorial of the important places in your area: community centers, city hall, outdoor sporting facilities, parks, main streets, local hangouts and community festivities, for example.
Take a photo from the same position every month, from the school yard or a particular window, to capture the change of seasons. Fall colors, winter snows, spring thaw, it will make for a beautiful photo essay in your book.

Yearbook Treasure Hunt
Hide your school mascot, a cartoon critter, or maybe even a photo of your principal (!) in the pages of your yearbook. Place the character peeking out behind photos and text, or hide them on top of class photos. Be sure to make a note of every place you've hidden the character. Save a space in the book to let people about the game. You might even want to run a contest to see who can find them all.
