Introduction

One of the district social studies assessments the third graders will complete this year is a project about Milwaukee. For this assessment, each student will choose a tourist attraction in Milwaukee today to research. The students should use the websites below to find information. Using the information they find, each student will create a brochure about his/her place using Microsoft Publisher. The brochure should include general information about your place (hours it is opened, how much it costs to get in, and the website address), the history of your place (when was it built, why was it built, who built it, how much did it cost to build it), what can visitors do and see there, and why visitors should visit your place (see if you can find some amazing facts for this section!). When the students are finished making their brochures about all the exciting places to visit in Milwaukee, they will e-mail them to a pen pal in a different state. The students' pen pals will be able to learn about our urban community and all there is to do in Milwaukee. In return, their pen pals will e-mail information and pictures of their community.
