Part of Lesson Plan: Create a Local Travel Guide to Generate Visitor Dollars
Activity Overview / Details
Now it's time for you to choose your own specific California destination to make a brochure about. It can be somewhere you have been or somewhere you have always wanted to go. Each student may choose their destination. If you cannot think of one I can help you but only one person per destination. You will cover the following things in your brochure
The brochure must address all required general and specific components listed below, but not necessarily in the same sequence. Additional components relevant to the specific destination may be included. At least three (3) examples must be provided for specific components "h" through "o."
General Components Specific Components
a. Name of California Destination h. Lodging
b. Table of Contents i. Shopping
c. History of Destination j. Dining
d. Climate k. Museums
e. Transportation l. Theater
f. Map m. Sports and Recreation
g. Calendar of Events n. Beaches, Parks, and/or
o. Visitor Services
********If your destination doesn't have 3 examples because it is too small, choose another destination.
The guide book may be either 4" wide x 9" long, or 5 ½ " wide x 8 ½ " long. (Teacher draws the exact measurements on the board)
You must also write a outline so that we know what is in your brochure as well as a summary page describing the process of making the brochure and a bilbliography.
