This six weeks my reading classes are doing a literature study on The Sign of the Beaver, by Elizabeth George Speare. We have also incorporated our language arts/social studies skills into our extension project. Each student is creating a Texas travel brochure on a specific Texas region. They are to take the reading skills of informing, persuading, and entertaining; then apply them to project topics. The following topics must be included in their individual travel brochure:
landforms, climate, economic resources, major cities and main attractions. The students have researched from a multitude of sources including the internet. Their project can be created into a real travel brochure or a Power Point presentation.
The following activities and web site will enhance your knowledge level of the novel The Sign of the Beaver.
