We construct families of Lefschetz fibrations over \( S^2 \) using finite order cyclic group actions on product manifolds \( \Sigma_g \times \Sigma_g \) for \( g \geq 0 \). We also obtain more families of Lefschetz fibrations by applying rational blow-down operation to these Lefschetz fibrations. This is joint work with Anar Akhmedov.
