 Walking Tour-

Project idea: Brochure

Grades: 4-8

If possible, take a walking tour of your town and take notes/pictures of all the historical sites.  Usually sites are marked with blue signs, explaining history.  If a walking tour is not possible, research important historical buildings in your town or area.  

Have students select a site or building and use Internet to continue researching information.

Each student should design and create a brochure for highlighting some of the important facts and history about their site. 

Share and discuss.
