Travel Poster Assignment
Alone or with a partner, pick a topic from the board.
This will be your topic for the assignment.
Using this topic, create a travel poster to attract visitors to the medieval Middle East.
For example, if you choose art, come up with a slogan about how wonderful the art is in the Middle East and include graphics that demonstrate this idea.
Use the book (pgs. 58—59) and/or your phone to find information to use on your poster.
Consider: How will you persuade visitors to come to the Middle East? How is your topic important and/or interesting? What could people learn from it or do with it?
Each poster must include:
A detailed drawing depicting your topic (Make it look as good as you can—it doesn’t need to be perfect.)
At least two reasons why people should visit (Try to convince the customer!)
On the back or on a separate sheet of paper, a five-sentence explanation of why your topic is significant and why people should learn more about it.
Alone or with a partner, pick a piece of paper from the bag.
Using the topic you were given, create a travel poster to attract visitors to the medieval Middle East.
