This download includes both the beautifully-designed 60-slide PowerPoint AND 5 different printouts for students. Enjoy!
The “College Collage” activity allows students to learn facts and locations of the nation’s top universities. 21 schools are included, representing different regions around the country. These schools have been chosen among others because, year after year, they are ranked as some of the world’s top schools by multiple sources.
There are 4 different project options, based on grade level and complexity. Some ask students just to cut out and match to the locations on the map, while others ask students to follow along and list facts about each school from the PowerPoint.
