Discussion idea:

  • Look at our collection on tourism. What activities or landmarks are featured? What are some popular activities or landmarks in your community? Read through the activity “Creating a State Postcard.” Modify this activity to create postcards promoting tourism in your community.

Note: We’re experimenting with a new feature here on the NG Education Blog. “Current Event Connection” posts will connect educators with news stories and relevant discussion ideas featuring content from the NG Education website.
