Your Task: Create a travel brochure that would excite potential tourists to take a vacation in the society we studied this unit. Everything in the brochure should be something that fits with the culture.
1. Turn a blank sheet of computer paper sideways and fold it into thirds.
2. Unfold it and number the sections on the back – from left to right – 5, 6, and 1. I know it seems wrong right now, but in the end it will be right.
3. Flip it over and number the sections on the front – again from left to right – 2, 3, and 4.
4. Now complete each section as follows:
Section 1: Write the name of the location (example: “Exciting Rome”) and draw a picture of
Section 2: Write the word History and briefly describe the important events of this culture’s
past. Draw a map of the location.
Section 3: At the top of the section write the name of a specific site in this culture that every vacationer has to see. Draw a picture of the site and write about why tourists should see it. (Why is it important to the culture? What happens there?)
Section 4: Create a fake amusement park. Title this section with the amusement park’s name, draw a picture, and write about some of the rides and attractions. These should be based on something important from the civilization.
Section 5: Title it “Accommodations and Dining”, draw a picture, and describe where the vacationer will stay (in other words, this culture’s type of home) and write about the types of food a vacationer might eat there.
Section 6: Write a paragraph that persuades tourists that this culture and location is the best place to take a vacation. (Hint: if it doesn’t make you want to go there, it probably won’t make anyone else want to either.)
