This community research project guides students through exploring their town's history/traditions, economy (business), geography, and places to visit. Then, students create their own newspaper column about their community. The research pages and newspaper templates are also included as Google Slides so students can complete this digitally if you choose. This compliments the Benchmark Advance curriculum (unit 7), but can be used in any classroom learning about their community.
Included in this .zip file:
- Teacher pages: how to use this resource, vocabulary to pre-teach
- Student research pages (both paper and Google Slides)
- Three blank newspaper templates (both paper and Google Slides)
- A sample newspaper I completed for my own community
