This activity is a hands-on project that meets the Next Generation Science Standard for third grade: 3-ESS2-2 Earth’s Systems (Obtain and combine information to describe climates in different regions of the world).
Using a provided website, students will research a different climate around the world. They will find specific information about their climate and then create a travel brochure to persuade travelers to visit. Students will give a practice presentation to their classmates in the form of a Gallery Walk. This will be followed up by a Travel Fair open to parents and other classes in order for your new travel agents to “sell” their climate to prospective “tourists.” This project is a great way for students to not only do research, but also to have an authentic presentation in the form of a Travel Fair.
