Famous Places Wall

  1. Divide a bulletin board into sections based on continents or particular countries that you may be studying.
  2. Have a collection of books on these different places or on particular things from these places like buildings or events and culture.
  3. Have your students research several of these places and write down facts that they discover on the wall (bulletin board).
  4. After everyone has had a chance to write something for each continent/country, you can create class books for them. Have students illustrate their topic and write about it. Collate all of these into a class book.
