PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are your students partaking in a country study?? Use these supplemental materials to engage your students in this fun project!

This is NOT a unit plan; there are no lesson plans. What is included are resources and templates to use to help your students choose a country to study and then show their understanding.

What's included:
*Brainstorming Boarding Pass- this back to back page is for students to write down different countries they are interested in researching and why. They can pick their top 2 to help you form groups if you have limited resources. The other side has a space for their name, their partner's name (who may also be researching the same country), their country's name, the date, and the reason they chose that country
Check out how I used this in my own classroom at my blog here Kicking off our Country Study

*6 Panel Brochure- after students have researched a country have them show you and their classmates what they learned. They'll share things about the landscape and landforms, culture, history, and other facts. The layout is set up like a 'travel agency' and your students are the travel agents.

*6 RAFT writing prompts- an alternative to the brochure or to be used in addition to the brochure. RAFTs are great creative writing options. Students can choose from 6 different situations, all with a different R-role, A-audience, F-format, T-topic. I've included short definitions for some of the words. Also, I've included 6 writing pages, one for each of the RAFTS. The different forms include:
-an E-mail
-a Post card
-a Blog post
-a Thank you letter
-a Magazine article
-a Speech

I hope you and your students enjoy showing their learning through these resources! Credits and Terms of Use is included in the download.
