Product Description
This unit will help your students master a number of the Common Core standards for informational text! You gather a variety of tourist brochures for attractions in your area or state, and the learning takes off!

Students will use the brochures to determine key details, study text features, and analyze the effective use of text features. Students will also verbally present information to their classmates.

The second half of the unit provides students an opportunity to focus on writing informational text. Using graphic organizers provided in the unit, students will research one tourist attraction. Students will learn how to organize their own informational text into a structured article. Technology skills, such as searching for specific information on the internet, importing pictures into documents and using keyboarding skills are a natural fit in this unit.

Fourth grade social studies standards often include learning about U.S. states. As students learn about various tourist attractions, they also naturally uncover new learning about the state’s history and geography. Students who had difficulty locating their home town on a state map at the beginning of this unit were able to find a variety of locations by the end of the unit.

This two week unit guides students through reading and writing real life informational text. Each session is designed to take approximately 30 minutes.
