A Place I'd Like to Visit
This is the final book project of the school year.
This month's book project assignment
will be to read a book about a place you'd like to visit and complete
one of the project choices listed below. You need to choose an
informational book about a place, such as a national park, a famous
city, a landmark, etc. It should be a place in which you are
interested, or better yet, a place your family is really going to visit
this summer. The librarian and your teacher will help you find a
book about a place. You will be given time at school to read your book,
but you will also have to read at home. Your teacher will ask you how
you are enjoying your book and what page you are on.
Once you have finished your book, choose a project from these choices:
1. Plan an itinerary for a visit to this place. Include a
daily schedule that starts at your house, tells how you would travel to
this place, what you would do each day you are there, and how and when
you would go back home. Describe the activities or sights you
would see each day on your trip. Your itinerary needs to be at
least 2 pages long and it should be written or neatly typed and contain
no errors. It should contain specific details about the place,
such as admission fees, times of day, etc.
2. Make a map on a 12x18 sheet of paper. Draw a detailed
map including at least 10 things you would see or do at this place.
Your map should be neatly designed, colored, and labeled and have
3. Research the history of this place. Write a 2 page report on
the development of this place, including any people, natural events,
historical significance, etc. important in its history. Your
report should be neatly typed or written and contain no errors.
4. Pretend you are visiting this place and have bought 6
postcards. Draw and color the 6 postcards, each one showing a
different scene of something at this place. On the back, just
like a real postcard, write a 5-7 sentence paragraph describing the
scene and pretend you are sending this postcard to a friend. Your
sentences need to be neat and have no errors. Make your postcards
look just like real postcards, but design and draw them yourself!
This project is due May 24, 2011.
