Integrate writing, technology, and social studies content with this brochure about Colorado symbols.
The frustrating thing about technology is that sometimes it takes kids twice as long to format their project as it does to actually complete it. This brochure is formatted and ready to go, with text boxes that tell students exactly what to write in each box.
The final project comes out looking professional and interesting. Students will be proud, and parents will be impressed with this project.
There's also a blank brochure for teachers to print out and have students write and draw on directly if you don't have access to technology, would prefer to have your kids write rather than type, or want to send it as a homework project.
Students must not only know the symbols, but also think about and evaluate them in this project.
