Product Description
Do you teach social studies or language arts in the great city of Austin, Texas? This product will enhance your students' knowledge of some of our city's most famous and historical landmarks!

Using the list provided, assign an Austin landmark to each student. Alternatively, you could have students work in pairs or small groups on one landmark. The ‘research worksheet’ will help them organize the information they find.

Once their research is completed, students could create a variety of final products. I originally intended the final product of this activity to be a 'class book,' with each student contributing a page about his/her landmark. After completing this activity with my students, I was (of course!) impressed with their creative thinking - asking me if they could instead create a song/commercial/poster/brochure/skit/research paper about their landmark instead! So really, your possibilities are limitless!

Included in this product:
*Teacher directions/final product ideas
*Poster listing 24 of Austin's well-known landmarks
*Research worksheet
*Class Book title page
