Activity Overview

Creating a travel poster is another fun way for students to show off where they or their family is from. In this activity, students will create a poster that demonstrates their knowledge of their country of choice. This example is focused on a Spanish-speaking country, but instructions can be updated as necessary to reflect your student population. Students should use school resources to conduct research and focus on topics such as government, local cuisine, tourist destinations, local customs, and fun facts. They should be prepared to cite their sources on a separate document, which can include personal experience!.
