Modifiers : This culminating activity is great for ending a unit on modifiers. The students love the activity as it gives them a chance to show off their creative side through the design of their travel brochures.
Before I assign this activity, I teach a mini-lesson on brochures: characteristics of brochures, what makes brochures informative, etc. I then have sample brochures that I have collected that I use to show the students. They get into collaborative pairs, and complete the characteristics of a travel brochure handout in this packet with their partner. They are able to discuss brochures as they are looking through a variety of brochures.
This activity is easily cross-curricular. You can incorporate this with the countries, areas, or regions the students are studying in social studies. My students love this activity, and it is wonderful to see their enthusiasm for an assignment.
