Anytown: City Travel Brochure

Lesson Plan Content
As students begin to learn about the world, they often want to know more about cities—those near and far from them. In this lesson, students will research a city to develop a mental map of what economic activities and recreational features create the unique qualities of this location. Students will then create a brochure to advertise the area to others.
