PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The first part of the United States brochure project materials help teach paraphrasing techniques to students. After students practice putting text in their own words, each student is assigned a state to research.

Students search for a variety of facts about the assigned state and present the information in a state brochure. They use their paraphrasing skills to gather notes in order to prepare the tri-fold brochure.

There is an optional letter writing activity in this product where students write to a person living in the researched state and request that the person mail a postcard back to the class.

After the brochure is complete, students complete a chart that makes generalizations about the United States regions in order to compare and contrast the geography of the United States.
