Project Based Learning Idea: Plan a Road Trip

project basedlearning ideas for middle school plan a road trip

Share this Post

Project based learning is a great way to expose students to real world problems and activities. PBL activities engage them in learning skills and problem solving in a way that traditional class activities don’t. If you’ve never tried a PBL project, you will love it, AND your students will ask for more! These project based learning ideas for middle school and elementary students are just what you need to get started.

travel assignment for students

Who doesn’t love an epic road trip? Road trips are filled with memories, fun, adventure, and excitement.  But planning a road trip is anything but easy. There are so many amazing math, reading, writing, map reading and problem solving skills involved in a road trip that it is the perfect task for a fun project based learning activity.

Plan a Road Trip Project

travel assignment for students

This project based learning activity  will have your students planning a road trip from start to finish.  Students can work independently or in small groups as they work through this PBL project. Although working in small groups can sometimes be more difficult, it also gives students opportunities to develop communication skills and inter-personal problem solving skills.

A great way to introduce this project is to show kids a variety of print or video commercials for vacation destinations. Show pictures from a personal road trip that you’ve taken. You can even ask your students to talk about road trips they have taken with their families or friends. Once the class is excited about the topic, it’s time to let them get started

The  Plan a Road Trip PBL Project  has everything you need to get you class started. Just choose the activities from the packet you want your students to complete. Start with the planning pages included in the project. You can then do all of the activities or choose the ones that best meet your own learning objectives.

This resource includes a variety of printable activity pages and 3 final projects – more than enough for a great PBL unit. You can choose to have the students complete one final activity at the end, or weave them into the project so they ultimately complete all three projects.

1. Choose a Destination

travel assignment for students

Students start by choosing 4 possible destinations for their road trip. After doing some basic research on each location they then narrow down their options to one final destination.

Let your students determine whether they will visit one place or make a loop from start to finish in order to see multiple locations, or whether to travel near or far. For older students, a great way to add a new level of complexity to the project is to give them an overall road trip budget.

After students choose their destination, you could add in project #1, Mapping the Route. This would be a great place to have students create a map of the road trip with labeled states and destinations!

2. Prepare for the Road Trip

travel assignment for students

Choosing the destination is just the start! Students will then work on planning their road trip. In this planning phase they will be working on activities like:

  • The Packing List
  • Must-See Spots
  • Places to Stay
  • Distance Traveled
  • Time and Money on the Road
  • So Much More!

As students research and complete the pages, they use many different problem-solving skills, while strengthening their reading, writing, and math skills. As you can see there is no academic skill loss in this project!

Students will document their amazing  road trip project  by creating their own road trip selfies, music play list and more.  They will send postcards to their friends from one or more locations and they can even design a billboard for one of the tourist attractions they visit.

3. A Virtual Road Trip

travel assignment for students

Once back home from their virtual road trip students will spend some time reminiscing!  They will love writing about their favorite places and activities along the way. This is the perfect place for project #3 – An Amazing Destination. In this persuasive writing activity, students write about their destination in an attempt to get others to visit it too!

Finish up with your very own Travel TV Show where students present their road trips to the class.  A fun way to end is to let students vote on where they want to go next based on their classmates presentations!

4. The Final Projects

travel assignment for students

Once students have completed the planning pages, it’s time to assign one (or all) of the three final projects! You can choose any or all of these final projects. And yes, the scoring rubrics are included!

Final Road Trip Project Options:

  • Mapping the Route
  • Create a Destination Brochure
  • An Amazing Destination Paragraph Writing

Once back home from their virtual road trip students will spend some time reminiscing!  They will love writing about their favorite places and activities along the way.  This is the perfect place for project #3 – An Amazing Destination.  This persuasive writing activity has students write about their road trip or one destination in an attempt to get others to visit it too!

travel assignment for students

This month’s Teacher’s Corner explores the world of travel and tourism. Specifically, each week covers travel-related topics that students can use to practice speaking, reading, and listening.

For many English learners, traveling the world is one of the many reasons they study English. No matter where you travel, it is easy to find a speaker of English to help you on your journey. However, as every good traveler knows, it is best to be prepared. This month’s Teacher’s Corner is devoted to giving students the chance to practice and prepare their English for the world of travel.

The activities this month are designed to give students the opportunity to creatively practice their English while thinking about travel both at home and abroad:

  • Week 1 – Around the World
  • Week 2 – What to See in Town
  • Week 3 – Planning a Trip
  • Week 4 – Over-tourism

Week 1 begins the month with a Pecha Kucha style presentation. In these fast-paced presentations, students must describe an around-the-world trip in three minutes using only six presentation slides. In Week 2, students practice common phrasal verbs used in travel and tourism. In Week 3, students describe the tourist attractions in their home countries by preparing a six-day trip for a new visitor. Finally, this month’s Teacher’s Corner concludes with a debate activity focused on the increasing concern of over-tourism.

travel assignment for students

Table of Contents

In this week’s Teacher’s Corner, students are tasked with creating a Pecha Kucha presentation on an around-the-world trip. Pecha Kucha is a presentation style where each presenter is allowed twenty slides which are shown for twenty seconds each. The goal is to encourage the speaker to be concise – to not talk too long. For this activity, students will get six slides shown for thirty seconds each, with each slide showcasing a place they would like to visit on a trip around the world.

Intermediate to Advanced

LANGUAGE FOCUS

Speaking, reading (primary focus) Listening (secondary focus)

Students will practice speaking, reading, and listening through

  • Researching locations they would like to visit on a trip around the world
  • Delivering a three-minute presentation about their around-the-world trip
  • Teacher: computer, projector, stopwatch or other timing device, a map
  • Students: notebook, pencil, paper, computers (for research to be done as homework, or books and encyclopedias)

PREPARATION

  • Read through all the materials carefully.
  • For this activity, students will be giving presentations to the class. To save time, be sure that students submit their presentations as a homework assignment before the day they will present them. The teacher should then have all the presentations loaded onto the class computer, ready to go at the start of the class. Having the presentations already loaded will save time, compared to each student separately loading his or her presentation on the computer. Having the presentations ready to go at the start of class will save time, compared to each student separately loading his or her presentation on the computer. If a computer is not available, this can be done on sheets of large paper as well.
  • During this activity, students will be giving presentations that have a set time limit of three minutes. To keep students on time, the teacher controls when the slides of the presentation change. Optionally, a student can be selected as the official timekeeper. This student can sit at the presentation computer to advance the slides instead of the teacher.

PART ONE: PREPARING TO DEPART

  • Begin the class by showing a map of the world. To warm students up for the activity, ask students to come to the board and point to countries that you name.
  • If none of the students know the meaning of the word, give them a clue. For example, point to the United States and tell the students, “The United States is a country.” Next, point to Mexico and tell the students, “Mexico is a country, too.” Finally, point to Canada and say, “Canada is also a country.” Then tell the students, “The United States, Mexico, and Canada are all on the same continent.” While speaking, use your finger to draw a large circle around the North American continent. (Don’t forget to include Central America too!)
  • To check the students’ comprehension of the word continent ask the class, “How many continents are there in the world?” Students should respond with “seven”; if they answer “six,” they may have forgotten about Antarctica!
  • Ask the students which continent they most want to visit and why. Tell the students to think about their answers.
  • Next, have the students form pairs and share their answers with their partners.
  • Finally, have students share their answers with the entire class.
  • Inform the class that for homework they are going to plan an around-the-world trip.
  • Explain to the students that they will prepare a presentation to show the class about their around-the-world trip.
  • Instruct the students that their one location per continent must be a city, national park, or sightseeing location. An entire country is too large to select as one location!
  • Students must travel in one direction around the world (either east or west).
  • Each slide should have some basic information about the location and at least one picture of the location.
  • Finally, inform the students that they will only have three minutes to give their presentation to the class, and each slide will only be shown for thirty seconds. So, students should practice their presentations before class!

PART TWO: CLASS PRESENTATIONS

  • On the day students give their class presentations, remind them they only have thirty seconds for each slide. If time permits, give the students a few minutes to check their notes and prepare for their presentations.
  • Have the first student presenting come to the front of the class.
  • Open the student’s presentation and start the timer. After thirty seconds move to the next slide; after another thirty seconds move to the third slide; and so on.
  • Optional: After all the students have presented their around-the-world trip, have the class vote on the most interesting trip!

This week’s Teacher’s Corner provides students with the opportunity to practice using phrasal verbs in an activity about New York City.

Reading, speaking (primary focus) Listening (secondary focus)

During this activity, students will

  • Practice speaking skills through a matching activity
  • Practice reading skills and using travel-related phrasal verbs in a worksheet activity
  • Teacher: whiteboard or chalkboard, markers or chalk
  • Students: pencils or pens, notebooks or writing paper
  • Print out copies of the phrasal verb cards in Appendix 1. a. Students will use the phrasal verb cards in a pair-work activity. Print enough copies of the phrasal verb cards for each pair of students to have a set.
  • Cut out the phrasal verb cards and for each set, mix the cards so that the phrasal verbs and definitions are mixed well.
  • Print out copies of the phrasal verbs fill-in-the-blank worksheet in Appendix 2. Students will use the worksheet in a pair-work activity. Print enough copies of the worksheet for each pair of students to have one. The answer key is in Appendix 3.

ACTIVITY PART ONE: PHRASAL VERB WARM-UP

  • Begin the class by having the students form pairs. 
  • Give each pair a set of phrasal verb cards (already mixed up) from Appendix 1.
  • Have the students work together to match each phrasal verb to its correct definition.
  • After the students have completed the matching activity, review the answers as a class.
  • Next, ask the students, “What do the phrasal verbs have in common?” a. Answer: Each of the phrasal verbs is related to travel.
  • Next, ask the students, “What is the one city in the world you would like to visit?” a. Optional: Ask the students this question as part of a Think, Pair, Share activity.     i. First, have the students think about their answer individually.     ii. Next, have the students share their answer with their partner.     iii. Finally, encourage the students to share their answer or, even better, to share their partners’ answers with the class.

ACTIVITY PART TWO: PHRASAL VERB WORKSHEET

  • Begin this part of the activity by asking the students if they would like to visit New York City.
  • Next, ask why they would like to visit the city, or ask what they would like to do if they visited the city.
  • As students answer the questions, pass out the phrasal verb fill-in-the-blank worksheet to the pairs of students. Instruct them to read through the worksheet and circle any vocabulary they don’t know. a. If students have questions about vocabulary, take a few moments to answer their questions before moving on to Step 4.
  • Next, have the pairs of students fill in the blanks on the worksheet with the phrasal verbs on the cards they used in Part 1 of this activity. As students work, walk around the room to check on their progress.
  • Once the pairs have finished filling in the blanks, check their answers as a class.

This month’s Teacher’s Corner explores travel and tourism. This week’s activity asks students to think about their own cities or countries by designing a six-day trip for a visiting tourist.

LEVEL Intermediate to Advanced

FOCUS Reading, writing (primary focus) Speaking, listening (secondary focus)

GOALS During this activity students will

  • Practice speaking skills while creating a travel plan for their country or city
  • Practice presentations skills while delivering their travel plans to the class
  • Teacher: whiteboard or chalkboard, markers or chalk, poster paper (optional)

In this activity, students will prepare a travel plan for someone visiting their country or city for the first time. This activity can take place during one class period or across two classes depending on how much time your students need to prepare their travel plans.

  • Print out copies of Appendix 1 Travel Plans. Print enough copies so that each group of two to three students has one to complete.

ACTIVITY PART ONE: HOMEWORK – TRAVEL PLANNING

  • Begin this activity by having the students form groups of two to three students.
  • Give each group a copy of the Travel Plan from Appendix
  • Have the students work together to brainstorm a six-day travel plan to their country. a. If your students are from a large city, they could plan the entire six-day trip just in their city. If your students are from a smaller city or more rural area, they can plan a regional or nation-wide trip.
  • As the groups work, walk around the room asking groups for details about their trip. Encourage them to be as specific as possible. For example: if they write “stay in a hotel,” instruct them to be more specific: What hotel? Where in the city? What makes that hotel or area of the city interesting?
  • Optional: Depending on time and student levels, this activity can also be a homework assignment. After the groups have finished their travel plans, the homework can challenge the students to use the travel plans to create a poster, a flyer, or even a video where students can show off their six-day travel plans.

ACTIVITY PART TWO: TRAVEL SHOWCASE

  • After the groups have finished their travel plans, give them time to prepare a speaking presentation to the class. a. Instruct the students that for the presentation each student in the group must speak. For example, in a group of three students, each student can present on two days of the trip. b.  Note: Depending on students’ level and ability, this presentation part of the activity can be done on a separate day to give the students more time to prepare.
  • Next, have each group come to the front of the class and describe the travel plan they made to the rest of the class. a. For additional speaking practice, encourage the rest of the class to ask questions about the trip.
  • After each group has presented their travel plan, have the class vote on the presentations. Which travel plan was the best? Which was the most adventurous? Which was the most historic?

APPENDIX 1: TRAVEL PLANS

Directions: Plan a six-day trip to your country for a person who has never visited before. Choose a city, region, or the entire country. Include everything, such as what to visit, where to stay, and what to eat!

This month’s Teacher’s Corner explores the world of travel and tourism. With travel becoming easier and cheaper all around the world, people who live in popular tourist locations have begun to ask if too much tourism can be a problem. In this week’s activity, students will debate the positives and negatives of tourism.

Speaking, listening (primary focus)

Reading, writing (secondary focus)

  • Practice reading skills while reading an article about over-tourism
  • Practice speaking and listening during a debate on tourism
  • Teacher: whiteboard or chalkboard, markers or chalk, a timing device, Internet (optional)
  • Before class, read the article " Too Much Tourism "and listen to the audio version of the story.
  • Print out copies of Appendix 1: “Too Much Tourism” article. Print enough copies so that each student has one. Note: If a computer lab is an option for your class, have the students read the article by visiting this URL: https://learningenglish.voanews.com/a/too-much-tourism/4118421.html
  • On the website, the article has an audio version that can be streamed over the Internet or downloaded and played on a computer in class.

ACTIVITY PART ONE: "TOO MUCH TOURISM" ARTICLE

  • Direct students' attention to the board.
  • On the board write the word tourism . Ask the students what the word tourism means.
  • Next, as a check of their understanding, ask the class where in their country is popular for tourism?
  • Then, write the word over in front of the word tourism to create the new word over-tourism.
  • Again ask the students to provide a definition for this word. a.    Note: Over-tourism is a recent issue that has gained attention in the news and travel industry. It does not have an exact definition, but as long as students describe a problem of too many visitors to a place, their definition is acceptable.
  • Once again, check the students’ understanding by asking if there are any locations in their country that they think face problems with over-tourism. a.    Note: Depending on the level of the students, this question can be asked as a Think, Pair, Share. First have the students think about the question, then have them share their answers with a partner, finally have the pairs of students share their answers with the class.
  • Next, provide each student with a copy of the “Too Much Tourism” article in Appendix 1. Give students time to read the article. a.    Note: To provide students more listening practice, have them listen to the article by playing the audio version of the story from the webpage.
  • To check their comprehension, ask the following questions: a.    How many trips are tourists expected to take by the year 2030? (Answer: 1.8 billion) b.    What is Croatia doing to help stop over-tourism? (Answer: Limiting the number of daily visitors to the city of Dubrovnik.)
  • Finally, as a show of hands, ask the students who thinks limiting tourism is a good idea? Tell the class they will have the opportunity to share their opinions in a debate. 

ACTIVITY PART TWO: THE TOURISM DEBATE

  • Note:  For this debate, students will argue for and against tourism. If you teach a large class, you may want to break students into groups and then have these groups form two teams that can debate. Another option for larger classes is for students to volunteer to participate in the debate, while the rest of the class can act as audience and decide which team won.
  • Begin the debate by dividing the class (or a group of students) into two teams. Decide which team will be the For side, which will argue in favor of the topic, and which will be the Against side, which will argue against the theme of the topic.
  • While the students are forming For and Against teams, go to the chalkboard and write the theme and topics for the debate: Debate Theme: Tourism  Topic #1: Whether tourism is always good for the local economy, and the economy is more important than too many tourists. Topic #2: Whether too much tourism can harm the local culture of a city. Topic #3: Whether people should travel less. a.     Note:  If time permits have the students debate all three topics. For large classes, students can take turns debating: one group of students debates one topic, then the next group of students debates the next topic, and so on.
  • Direct the students’ attention to the three debate topics that you have written on the board and tell the students they should prepare their ideas on these topics for the debate. a.     Note: For more advanced lessons, assign the debate preparation as homework so students can research the topics and prepare with more details.
  • Once the students are prepared, have the students who are going to debate first come to the front of the class. Have the two teams form lines on opposite ends of the board. Begin the debate by having the first student in line of the For team present his or her argument for one minute. Then the first student from the Against team has one minute to challenge the ideas presented by the For team’s student.
  • After the first students from each team have spoken for a minute, have them move to the back of the line and have the second student in each line more forward. They will now debate against each other. This time the Against student goes first for one minute. The student for the For team then gets to present his or her argument on the topic. Continue until all students have had the opportunity to debate.

Remember:  An effective debate is not only about presenting an argument but also challenging the argument of one’s opponent. For more information on debates and ideas for using debates in class, check out The Great Mini-Debate on the American English webpage.

20 Travel Classroom Theme Ideas

Show them the world from your classroom.

Hero Image

There’s nothing like a travel classroom theme to help inspire curiosity, foster an explorer’s mindset, and give your kids a little global perspective—even if many of your students aren’t yet travelers themselves. (Emphasis on the  yet .)

1. Use your classroom door to let students know they’re taking an adventure. 

travel assignment for students

SOURCE: https://savedyouaspot.com

You can show students your travel theme first thing with artful door décor. The Now Boarding message will let students know they are taking an adventure when they enter your classroom. 

2. Make map art. 

travel assignment for students

SOURCE: https://designertrapped.com

An old map can get new life as travel-themed art. Add inspiring words or one of these cool quotes curated from EF Tours about travel, using die-cut letters or permanent markers. 

3. Call your homework assignment boards road maps. 

travel assignment for students

SOURCE: https://juliefaulknersblog.com

On your designated whiteboard, chalkboard, or bulletin board areas that show the week’s assignments, a Weekly Roadmap sign cleverly continues your travel theme.

4. Put up an interactive postcard display. 

travel assignment for students

SOURCE: Pinterest

Postcards from your own travels can do double duty as art and provide teaching moments about international destinations. Invite your students to bring in their own family postcards to add to the display.

5. Use vintage luggage for book displays. 

travel assignment for students

SOURCE: https://tumblr.libraryjournal.com

Old luggage from your parents, grandparents, or a thrift store makes for clever and cute storage for paperbacks. It’s a travel-themed take on the book bin and allows titles to be easily seen by students. 

6.  Frame geography-themed board games. 

travel assignment for students

History and social studies teachers are known for sharing their love of Risk! and other world affairs-themed board games with their students. If you have old games that are missing pieces, or pick them up cheaply at thrift stores, display the boards’ cool artwork of the  seven continents on your walls. By the way, our friends at EF Educational Tours lead groups of teachers and students to  destinations on six out of seven of these continents   (someday, Antarctica!) as well as many different types of tours for various areas of study .

7. Drive home travel with a road trip themed display table. 

travel assignment for students

SOURCE: https://tvahlsing.wordpress.com

Grab some black paper and all the books you can find about road trips, domestic travel and transportation. Add an iconic green and white road sign, and your students will be transported during their library or classroom visits.

8.  Give travel books an aspirational display.

Another awesome book display idea. This one places books about travel or set in far off lands front and center for reading ideas, easy borrowing and decoration, too. Be sure to subscribe (for free!) to the EF Journal and feature in your travel section.  

9. Brand your lost and found area the baggage claim.

All it takes is simple signage and suitcase clip art printed on labels to brand your coat closet or bag hook area baggage claim. 

10. Turn a bulletin board into a flight information display “screen.” 

travel assignment for students

SOURCE: http://www.bungalow327.com

This is a super idea for that random bulletin board you never know how to fill. Transform it into a flight- or train-information screen with black paper and white or green lettering. Feature cities you’re covering in your curriculum. Your creativity is sure to bump you to first class in the classroom-theme department.

11. Adopt a favorite country as your overall theme …  

travel assignment for students

Rather that focusing on general travel, or international or domestic locations, why not choose a particular country? We love this Spanish teacher’s homage to Mexico! 

12. … or a particular historic period. 

travel assignment for students

Art teacher Cassie Stephens adopts a different destination classroom theme each year. For her ancient Egypt theme, she sponge-stamped dollar store straw mats and painted her windows. During the year she incorporated ancient Egyptian techniques and history into her students’ art lessons.

13. Jazz up a neutral palette with colorful flags. 

travel assignment for students

SOURCE: https://schoolgirlstyle.com

If in years past you stuck to a neutral theme, such as black and white or beige and brown, just add colorful international or U.S. state flags for some pops of color. 

14. Study world flags and then invite students to design their own flags. 

travel assignment for students

SOURCE: http://www.mystoryismyflag.com/

You can also offer a lesson on the flags of different countries by inviting students to research flag designs. After they learn about what the colors and symbols represent, invite them to create their own flags that symbolize their own lives and origins. Then all you have to do is display the students’ work. Don’t you love it when assignments become classroom art?

15. Add an international skyline display to a frame for a “window” into another land. 

20 Travel Classroom Theme Ideas

A large picture frame or unused window can reveal a skyline to another land. Crafty teacher Gennai Henning of Bungalow 327 asked her art teacher colleague to draw the Paris skyline so her students would feel like they were really there. Wow! You could also create a group project with your students to recreate or create a skyline, or you could hang a panoramic photograph poster.

Travel Brochures: Highlighting the Setting of a Story

Travel Brochures: Highlighting the Setting of a Story

  • Resources & Preparation
  • Instructional Plan
  • Related Resources

Imagine the images and detailed descriptions of the places depicted in a book you've read recently—whether a far-away land, a historical location, or a city just like the one you live in. Settings transport readers to these places, inviting them to consider what it would be like to visit these locations personally. This lesson plan takes that imaginary tourism one step further by asking students to create a travel brochure for locations in texts that they have read. The activity requires students to think about and collect the details mentioned in the text that should be highlighted and conduct additional research on the location as they design their own brochures. This lesson plan uses Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko as the example; however, any text in any genre would work well.

Featured Resources

Travel Brochure Rubric : Use this rubric to evaluate the organization, ideas, conventions, and graphics of travel brochures students have created. Recording the Setting Bookmark : Students use this reproducible sheet, which can be cut into bookmarks, to record details about a story's setting as the read. Printing Press : Use this online tool to create a newspaper, brochure, booklet, or flyer. Students choose a layout, add content, and then print out their work.

From Theory to Practice

Often, students end a unit of study by writing a traditional research paper. While this is a good way for students to summarize what they have learned, it may not be the most interesting. Beyond that, it frequently results in summary and rote repetition rather than deep critical thinking. In this lesson plan, students go through the research process, but will take that information and turn it into a travel brochure. In her English Journal article, Janet Northrup says, "Unlike a research paper that usually has two readers, the teacher and the student, a pamphlet encourages ownership of a topic, a topic which each student knows will be shared with (and taught to) others. Also, class members develop research skills. They learn how to find information, develop a sense of voice and audience, write an arguable thesis statement, select relevant facts, create an interesting layout, and edit carefully." This project will meet the needs of both students and the teacher. Further Reading

Student Objectives

Students will

  • learn what makes a good travel brochure by examining commercial brochures.
  • think critically about text details from a text they have read.
  • create a travel brochure that incorporates research skills and text details.

Session One

  • Where did they go?
  • How did their families decide to go to these places?
  • What kinds of brochures, travel guides, books, and/or advertisements did their families explore before traveling?
  • If students have experience with travel guides and travel brochures, invite them to share what they remember about them.
  • Explain that the class is going to create travel brochure about one of the texts that students have read, focusing primarily on the setting of the story.
  • Display a variety of travel brochures. Provide time for students to look through the brochures, in groups, pairs or individually. Ask them to pay attention to layout, the highlighted features, illustrations, and the style of the included text.
  • Are there maps? photos? diagrams? other illustrations?
  • What kind of language and vocabulary is used?
  • How is text presented? paragraphs? bulleted lists?
  • Are there specific places highlighted? What kind?
  • Ask the students if they would like to visit any of the places in the brochures. If the students answer affirmatively, ask them to share what in the brochures made them want to visit. If students answer negatively, ask them to share why they would not like to visit that locale.
  • Have students brainstorm what make an effective travel brochure. Record their responses on the board or on chart paper. Some answers may be the pictures, the supporting text, the quotes from visitors, and so forth.
  • Explain that while the pictures and photos are added bonuses on travel brochures, the text plays an important role in persuading people to visit a certain place.
  • Review persuasive writing with students: In a persuasive writing piece, students begin by determining their goal or thesis. They then identify three reasons to support their argument, and three facts or examples to validate each reason. The Persuasion Map Planning Sheet makes a good visual for the students.
  • Brainstorm the kinds of information students need to include in their travel brochure. Record this information on the board. You can also refer to the Things to Include in a Travel Brochure handout.
  • Show the students the Travel Brochure Rubric so they know the requirements for the project.
  • Once students know the expectations for the assignment, ask them to choose a text for their brochures. Try not to have too many students using the same text. This lesson plan uses Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko as the example.

Session Two

  • When all of the students have selected a text for the project, invite them to revisit the text to look for examples and passages about the setting.
  • Demonstrate how to use the Recording the Setting Bookmark to note the examples from the text. Display the example bookmark and discuss the details that are included.
  • Pass out copies of the Recording the Setting Bookmark for students to use.
  • Give students the rest of the session to collect details from their books.
  • As students examine their texts for examples, circulate through the room. This is a good time to take observational notes or ask students questions as they are working.

Session Three

  • Once students have found examples from their text about the setting, explain that it’s time for them to conduct research on the setting using the Internet, reference materials, magazines, newspapers, etc. Students can visit Notes from the Road and Travel & Cultures for information on many areas of the world. If the students are using a Science Fiction or Fantasy text, they may have a more difficult time with the research. In that case, they should rely more on their findings in the text.
  • Invite students to record their research findings on the Things to Include in a Travel Brochure handout. Share with them the example research notes .
  • As students are researching, help as needed.
  • Briefly demonstrate the Printing Press for students. Show the students how they can use the tool to create their finished product. Place students’ emphasis on thinking about the content for the brochures and flyers, as the Printing Press will make the process of making the final product a simpler one.
  • You can also share with the students an example setting brochure of a book that the class has read so they can see what they can include in their own brochures.

Session Four

  • After students have gathered clues from their texts as well as completed research on their setting, they are ready to begin working on creating their travel brochures, highlighting the setting of a text using the Printing Press .
  • Assist students as needed.
  • Remind students that they cannot save their work on the Printing Press so they will need to work diligently on their project.

Session Five

  • Once all of the students have completed their brochures using the Printing Press , allow time for the students to share their brochures with the rest of the class.
  • Assess the students work using the rubric .
  • Instead of making a travel brochure about their setting, students could design a postcard highlighting one of the locations mentioned in their text. Students can publish this postcard using the Postcard Creator .
  • Pairing the brochures with the text they accompany would make a good classroom or library display.

Student Assessment / Reflections

  • For formal assessment, use the rubric . Additionally, you can ask students to freewrite on the following reflective question: After completing this activity, what role do you think the setting plays in a text? Will you pay more attention to the setting now that you have completed this activity?
  • Informal assessment can come from observations, interviews, and examination of the students' bookmarks and notes.
  • Lesson Plans
  • Calendar Activities
  • Student Interactives
  • Professional Library

Students read a section from On the Road that deals with cross-country travel and reflects Kerouac's unique writing style. Students then attempt to write a narrative using Kerouac's stream-of-consciousness style.

The interactive Printing Press is designed to assist students in creating newspapers, brochures, and flyers.

6 Beautiful Travel Brochure Examples for Students

6 Beautiful Travel Brochure Examples for Students

If you compare the first brochure ever made to the brochures of today, the differences may surprise you. The earliest brochures were black and white with no photos. The purpose was purely informational. Today, visual elements and overall design play a much bigger role, especially when you’re creating a brochure as part of an educational goal.

In this blog post, we’ll give you travel brochure examples for students. Keep reading to empower yourself to create something others can use as inspiration when exploring new destinations. 

Before You Start: 3 Elements Your Brochure Needs

Planning is an important first step for travel and the same is true for creating brochures. Here’s a look at what every good brochure needs.

1. Research the Destination

It’s important to do your homework before you travel. There are many ways to do this, and what you choose will depend on how close you are to the destination and what you may already know about it.

If you’re close enough to the destination to visit yourself, take the time to travel there. This will give you firsthand experience and insight that can add a unique perspective to your brochure design.

When traveling to the destination doesn’t make sense, start your research online instead. You can use official government websites, tourism blogs, or even social media to get a sense of what’s special about the location.

Ask Family and Friends

You can also get tips from people who live in or have traveled to the destination. Understanding what the must-see or must-do attractions are will give you the right information to include on brochure panels.

2. Get Images

Next, you’ll need images for your design. There are two options you can choose from to get the best possible results.

Pick Up Your Camera

If you’re able to visit the destination yourself, brush up on photography tips before you go, so you can take your own pictures .

This way, your brochure will be differentiated from any others and grab people’s attention.

Purchase Stock Images

Don’t have access to images of your own? Buy images from a stock image site to use in your project. Just make sure you understand the license terms and limitations before you decide to use an image.

3. Select a Template

At this point, you’ll have everything you need to start putting your brochure together. Choosing a brochure template is the best way to ensure you can create a visually appealing asset, even if you don’t have any design experience.

Look for something that’s easy to add your information to and edit with an online design . In just a few clicks with an online editor , you can put a brochure together that you can print and share to show what you learned.

Not sure where to start with your brochure design? You don’t have to come up with something or struggle to put it together on your own.

Instead, use these ideas to help you get the ball rolling on your own creation. 

1. Handmade Brochure

Handmade brochures are nice for projects you want to feel extra special. Start with a simple, blank page with multiple sections.

Then you can write or draw on the details you want to include to give the final product a personal touch.

2. Digital Brochure

Digital brochures are handy for showcasing your work because they’re easy to update and share on social media.

You can customize them with interactive links, videos, and other multimedia content that would be difficult (or impossible) to include in a print brochure.

3. City Brochures

Mastering the Art of Travel Writing: Tips for Students

Do you love writing and traveling? Do you dream about seeing the world and discovering hidden gems in every country you go to? Then you might have considered becoming a travel writer. Even though this is one of the dream jobs many students have, it comes with challenges too. Mastering the art of travel writing is not hard, but you have to put in a lot of dedication, effort, and time. This is a captivating genre that allows you to share your experiences, observations, and adventures from your journey. Writing about travel is what you, as a student, might aspire to.

So, you are probably looking for some tips and tricks on how to get started. What is travel writing? Are there more types of travel writing? Learn more about some travel writing tips that can enhance your craft and help you create engaging stories. While some spots can inspire you to write fascinating posts, you can take matters into your own hands and improve your skill.

Immerse Yourself in Traveling

Well, you cannot be a travel writer if you are not traveling. This is why it is essential to travel extensively. Explore distinct places , cultures, and landscapes. Get to know the locals, talk with them and find out more about the local traditions and social norms. Every country is different from another one. And even though some beliefs or lifestyles might be similar, there are so many things that tell them apart. And you can learn more about this by traveling and talking with locals too.

However, as a student, you have academic responsibilities too. Getting an education in school is not only about attending classes or what notes you take during teaching but about writing essays and assignments too. And traveling around the world is time-consuming, which might make you fall behind your deadlines. Thankfully, there are essay writers for hire, essay writers that are skilled and professional and can help you complete your assignments. Getting some much-needed help will help you follow your passion and travel around the world. This way, you will gather experiences you can write about.

Maintain a Travel Journal

To write a travel short story or an article for your blog, you need to travel. But you also need to observe the peculiarities of every place you go to. You may not have time every day to write an article, but there is a solution. You could maintain a travel journal. Have it with you everywhere you go.

Write down your thoughts, impressions, and experiences while they are still fresh in your mind. This way, you make sure you do not forget anything worth mentioning. When you will sit down and write your articles later, this journal will be an invaluable resource.

Take Photos

If you want to become a travel writer, you have to write, of course. But photos can add more value to your travel stories or articles. So, whenever you can, aim to capture high-quality photos . Learn more about the art of photography to complement your words with images.

Read Widely

Besides practicing the art of writing more and traveling around the world, you could hone these skills by reading too. It is known that reading helps you expand your vocabulary as you learn new words that will help you convey the message effectively.

But, reading what other travel writers have published will help you learn more about writing techniques. How do they tell a story? How do they hook you and capture your attention? Reading widely does not mean that you will end up copying others. It just serves as a source of inspiration that will help you develop your unique voice.

Honesty and Authenticity

Many students who are aspiring to become travel writers think that they only have to share positive experiences from their travels. Indeed, when you discover new places and cultures, everything you see might be through some pink lens.

However, readers appreciate honesty and authenticity. So, help them see your experience through your eyes. Do not be afraid to share the parts of the trip that were not as pleasant. This will help them have a clear idea of what to expect from specific places. They are looking for genuine insights.

What to Keep in Mind?

Writing about traveling and trips around the world is an art. To excel in this craft, not only do you need to improve your writing skills, but also gain as much traveling experience as you can. For those who might not have the time or expertise, there are paper writers for hire who specialize in travel content. However, do not forget that travel writing is a journey in itself. Embrace the process, keep practicing, and let your passion for exploration and storytelling shine through your words.

The Art of Storytelling Through Travel Blogging

Storytelling Through Travel Blogging

When it comes to travel blogging, the art of storytelling plays a pivotal role in capturing the essence of travel experiences and engaging readers on a deeper level.

Through captivating narratives, students have the opportunity to transport their audience to the places they’ve visited, allowing them to experience the thrill, beauty, and cultural richness that come with traveling and studying abroad.

The key to effective storytelling lies in the use of descriptive language, vivid imagery, and personal anecdotes. By painting a vivid picture with words, students can evoke emotions and create a connection with their readers, immersing them in the sights, sounds, and flavors of their adventures.

Successful travel blogs often excel in storytelling by weaving a compelling narrative around their travel experiences . They transport readers to breathtaking landscapes, bustling markets, and enchanting historical sites through the power of their words.

By incorporating personal anecdotes and reflections, students can add authenticity and relatability to their stories. This makes them resonate with their audience. Storytelling enables students to share the essence of their travel experiences.

It inspires wanderlust and fosters a sense of connection and cultural understanding among readers. Whether it’s describing the exhilaration of conquering a challenging hike, the serenity of watching a sunset over the ocean, or the joy of connecting with locals.

One notable example of a travel blog that excels in storytelling is “Wanderlust Chronicles.” Through a combination of captivating narratives, the blogger takes readers on a virtual journey to destinations across the globe. It can be stunning photography, amazing voice-overs, as well as engaging videos.

The blog’s storytelling prowess lies in its ability to transport readers to different corners of the world. It immerses them in the unique landscapes, traditions, and flavors of each place. “Wanderlust Chronicles” captivates its audience and ignites a desire for exploration. They share personal anecdotes, highlighting the challenges and triumphs of travel and infusing the narratives with enthusiasm and passion. Such blogs serve as a testament to the power of storytelling in travel blogging. They inspire students to develop their own unique storytelling styles.

Inspiring Others: Writing Travel Recommendations And Tips

Writing Travel Recommendations

When it comes to travel blogging, it’s not just about sharing personal experiences; it’s also about inspiring others to embark on their own adventures. One way to do this is by providing valuable travel recommendations and tips to readers.

Students have the opportunity to guide and influence others through their travel blogs. Whether it’s suggesting off-the-beaten-path destinations, hidden gems, or must-try local cuisines. Students can also become trusted sources of information. They can share firsthand knowledge and insights gained from their own journeys. This will help fellow travelers plan their trips more effectively and make the most of their experiences.

To create informative and helpful travel content, a combination of research and personal experiences is key. Students can start by conducting thorough research on the destinations they’ve visited. They can also gather information on attractions, accommodations, transportation options, and local customs. This research serves as the foundation for creating practical travel guides that offer valuable insights to readers.

However, it’s equally important to infuse the content with personal experiences and anecdotes. By sharing their own adventures, students can add a unique perspective and authenticity to their recommendations and tips. Whether it’s sharing packing hacks, money-saving strategies, or cultural etiquette, personal experiences make the content relatable and relatable and enhance the reader’s trust in the blogger’s expertise.

Tips & Tricks

In addition to practical travel guides, students can also offer specific tips and advice on various aspects of travel. They can share their insights on packing efficiently, navigating public transportation systems, finding budget-friendly accommodations, and even tips for engaging with locals and immersing oneself in the local culture.

By providing these valuable tips, students not only help readers have smoother and more enjoyable travel experiences but also foster a sense of camaraderie within the travel community. The joy of travel lies not only in personal experiences but also in the connections made and the shared knowledge that enhances the journeys of fellow travelers.

Incorporating Multimedia Elements: Photos and Videos in Travel Blogs

travel assignment for students

When it comes to travel blogging, words alone may not be enough to capture the essence and beauty of a destination. Incorporating multimedia elements such as photos and videos can greatly enhance the visual appeal of travel blogs and bring the experiences to life for readers.

High-quality photographs allow readers to visualize it all. The stunning landscapes, vibrant cultures, and awe-inspiring moments that the student blogger encountered while traveling. Students can create an immersive experience for their readers, igniting their wanderlust and curiosity. They can showcase their photography skills and capture the essence of a place through images.

In addition to photographs, videos are another powerful tool for engaging readers and sharing travel experiences. Through travel vlogs, students can take their audience on a virtual journey. They can provide a dynamic and interactive medium to showcase their adventures. With video editing software readily available, students can create captivating visual narratives. They can combine footage from their trips with personal commentary and insights.

From cinematic montages to informative destination guides, videos offer a unique and engaging way to tell travel stories. They offer a more comprehensive view of the experiences students have while traveling. By incorporating photos and videos into their travel blogs, students can effectively convey the sights, sounds, and emotions of their journeys. This will help create a rich and immersive experience for their readers.

In conclusion, travel blogging offers a wonderful opportunity for students to share their unique travel experiences and recommendations with a global audience.

Throughout this article, we have explored the various aspects of travel blogging. We have highlighted the importance of storytelling, writing travel recommendations, and incorporating multimedia elements.

By embracing travel blogging as a creative and educational assignment, students can not only inspire others but also enhance their writing and communication skills in a fun and engaging way.

How Taxiyo.com Is Taking Us Beyond Simple Taxi Booking!

BY  Ankita Tripathy Feb 5, 2024

In an exciting turn of events, Taxiyo.com, widely recognized for its streamlined taxi booking and airport transfer services, is now venturing into a new domain that promises to enrich the travel experience of its clientele. The company has announced its plans to expand its business model to include day trips for customers, a move that signifies a bold step towards offering a more holistic travel experience. This addition is not just an extension of services but a transformation in how we perceive travel convenience and exploration. What is Taxiyo: Everything You Need to Know! Have you ever wished for a hassle-free way to book a taxi in any city, at any time, and for any occasion? If yes, then you are not alone. Millions of people around the world face the same problem every day. They have to deal with unreliable drivers, surge pricing, long waiting times, and poor customer service. That's why we need to talk about Taxiyo, a revolutionary app that goes beyond simple taxi booking. Taxiyo is not just another taxi app. It is a platform that connects you with the best local drivers who offer personalized and professional service. Whether you need a ride to the airport, a business meeting, a sightseeing tour, or a night out, Taxiyo has you covered.  You can choose from a variety of vehicles, including sedans, SUVs, vans, and luxury cars. You can also specify your preferences, such as music, temperature, and route. Taxiyo will match you with the most suitable driver who will meet your expectations and make your journey comfortable and enjoyable. Feature of Taxiyo Taxiyo also offers some unique features that make it stand out from the crowd. Here are some of them: Fixed and transparent pricing: With Taxiyo, you don't have to worry about hidden fees, surge pricing, or tipping.

Regulatory hurdles: Taxiyo has to comply with different government laws and regulations on taxi services in different countries and regions, which may limit its expansion and operations. Customer loyalty: Taxiyo has to convince customers to switch from their preferred taxi apps to its platform, which may require offering incentives, discounts, and rewards. Beyond Transportation: Enriching the Travel Narrative This expansion is a testament to Taxiyo.com’s commitment to not just meet but exceed, the evolving expectations of modern travelers. Click here to check their prices.
