The students at our school absolutely loved this project!
Each student should get a different state that he has to research. That way each student gets to explore a state he didn't know before.
This project makes students perform a web quest about one of the states, great writing practice in a graphic organizer.
Students need to write about the state flag, flower, bird and tree. They are also required to look online for local restaurants; hotels and they are required to create an ad and a slogan for the state! Student are also required to print and paste photos or draw their own pictures.
The second slide has the instructions written inside a blank graphic organizer, that way students are very clear on where everything has to be written. The instructions contain guided research: it actually shows to which websites students should go in order to find some of the answers.
The last page is blank- that is where students need to present their research.
