Here are all the materials you will need for a fun research project on NYC Landmarks! Students will create advertisement flyers for different famous locations around New York City.
The file includes a worksheet, example, sign-up sheets, further instructions and rubric. It also includes eight pages about layout, design, and color.
Not only will they learn about New York City, they will also get to dabble in marketing and design.
The project also includes an oral presentation, which will allow them to practice their public speaking skills.
NOTE: My middle schoolers loved doing this as a complement to our novel THE PUSHCART WAR, which is set in NYC. I projected the pages about design and further instructions. It took my class 3 days to finalize the flyer, and then we had two groups present their flyers each day throughout the unit.
