    I have a homework, about how we think it will be the future of technology, but that’s not the matter. The teacher told us that the little story (yes, is a little science fiction story) it has to be printed as a little book of 10 pages, or 5 folded pages.
    The problem is, can Pages do this for me? I looked all the templates and I can’t found anything (or I didn’t look well?).
    And if I try making text boxes and extend all over the page, Pages will respect that?

    Since no one else answered I'll take a shot.

    I would use the blank page layout template. Choose the landscape option.

    Create two text boxes per page with the margins as you like. Now duplicate this to create the needed number of pages.

    If you really have to fold the pages you'll have to create links between the different text boxes. It would be much easier to just create the document then cut the pages down the middle, assemble as needed and staple together.

    There is an easier way. First download the excellent piece of software on this link: http://web.mac.com/vogelbusch/Site/..._Create_Booklet_1.1_support_Snow_Leopard.html
    Then make a 10 page document in pages. When you press print go to the save as pdf button and look for the create booklet entry. This will convert your 10 page pages document into a pdf with the pages already sorted so that you just print and then construct your booklet. A great thing for any teachers out there.:)
