Travel brochures are a great way for kids to record information about neat places around the world. With the internet it’s really easy to find travel information, but it’s still more fun to go find a travel agency. They have lots of free full color brochures and cool insider information. And when you make your own travel brochure, you’re sure to remember all those fun facts you learn as you put them in one place.
Kids can choose a place, find out all about it, and then create their own travel brochure describing what it’s like, the fun things to do there, and why they would choose it for a destination spot. There are also blanks for drawing or cutting and pasting pictures of their vacation spot. The Travel Brochure is in tri-fold format.
Making travel brochures is a terrific combination geography/reading/writing assignment. Hope you grab the printable and try it.
- If you want to get really creative you could even use it as a history activity. (Imagine you were a European getting ready to travel to America for the first time during its colonization. Maybe you’re a knight heading to the Holy Land for a crusade. Perhaps you’d like to visit the Egyptian pyramids during their construction phase.) Pick a time period AND a place and you’ve got a history activity as well.
- Make a map of your destination to go along with your brochure.
- Have kids create a travel commercial along with their brochure that is used to convince you to travel there on vacation.
