MacArthur Grade 4 project

US National Parks.
Developed  by Kelly Puetz (4th grade teacher), Peggy Keohane (ITS) and Ellen Brandt (Library Teacher)
The scenario:  Mrs. Brandt needs help deciding which National Park to visit. Each student will become an expert on one National Park, and will create a compelling brochure to advertise it.  Mrs. Brandt loves to hike, kayak and explore the great outdoors, so students must mention landforms in their brochures. 
Grade 4 benchmarks addressed by this project include: Social Studies (North American Geography), ELA (Research skills, Multimedia, Writing), Information Literacy and Technology.
