Activity Description

If children and teens have the opportunity to visit someplace new or if they are interested in particular locations, invite them to create a travel brochure to share information about the place with others. They can draw pictures, use photographs, add maps, and write details about what they see or learn. In the end, they will be creating their own souvenirs!

Why This Is Helpful

The activity requires children and teens to think about details from a place they have visited or a place they might want to visit.  Both require research, but different kinds.  If they are writing about a place they have visited, they will be recalling interesting information, sensory details, and information about their trip.  If they are learning about a new place, they will be conducting Internet and book research and even interviews as they gather information.  Then, teens and children will take that information and turn it into a travel brochure. In both cases, they will find information, select relevant facts, create an interesting layout, and write for others or themselves to read.  Through this activity children and teens will have a chance to learn some skills that are vital to good writing.
