Students will love researching Illinois in this unit because they will get to design a commercial using Photostory ( a free download from Microsoft). Students will research attractions in Illinois, and create commercials ( directions included), then have your students watch each other's commercials and critique them. This unit includes a direction sheet, reflection questions, research notes organizer, a commercial organizer, a critique sheet, and a rubric for the project. I have left this document as a word document, so that you can change the project for any state, tailor the questions, directions, organizers and rubric to meet your needs. Additionally, you can also make commercials on imovie or Microsoft Movie Maker if you can not download Photostory. Please don't download and run, if you like this item, please rate it and check out my other creative projects on my site.
