Primary Subject – Language Arts
Secondary Subjects – Social Studies, Art, Computers / Internet
Grade Level – 6- 8
Have students fold a piece of paper into threes. Your paper is to become a brochure, so you want it to be long and narrow.
Have students choose any place they would like to visit. As the teacher, you can stipulate if the destination is real or imaginative. I have had students create brochures for their imagination, Heaven, Friendshipland or Monopolyland. On the other hand, students have created brochures for NYC, Paris, Hawaii, the Grand Canyon, etc. It is completely up to you and your class.
The cover of the brochure needs to be a picture of their land. The inside needs to include; a brief description, things to do, places to stay, where to eat, directions, deals or coupons. You can bring in real brochures to give them ideas. If you have time, they can use the computer for more information. Explain to the class that you want it colored and no empty space. I have had some very amazing work in the years that I have used this project.
