Travel brochure projects stand the test of time because they are so versatile. They work well across content areas and grade levels. It’s also fairly easy to align your brochure project with Common Core and state standards. Finally, historical travel brochure projects appeal to a wide-range of learners; they are easy to customize and differentiate as needed. Ideas for each panel of a historical travel brochure project are listed below. Higher order thinking skills are sprinkled throughout to balance rigor and creativity.
The overall objective of the project is for students to create a historical travel brochure that entices others to visit a time and place in history. The cover panel should reflect this objective. Students will need to:
- Add a brochure title
- Draw (or insert) a cover picture
- Write one sentence that encourages people to visit the historical location.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Frequently Asked Questions: The frequently asked questions portion of the brochure project requires students to think critically about the historical location. Based on what they have learned about the location and historical time period, students will need to:
- Write three historically accurate questions and answers about the location.
REASONS TO VISIT
Persuading travelers to visit the historical location gives students an opportunity to apply what they have learned. In other words, this portion of the brochure will require students to make use of the information in a context different from the one in which it was learned. Students will need to:
- State three reasons to visit the location and draw (or insert) a picture for each reason.
Requiring students to provide historically accurate facts about the location will show that they clearly understand and are able to translate credible historical information. To do this, students will need to:
- Include four historically accurate facts about the location.

MAP & GEOGRAPHY
This portion of the brochure project reinforces map skills and supports spatial thinking by requiring students to visualize where cities, landmarks, and geographical features are located in relation to one another. Students will need to:
- Draw (or insert) a map of the historical location with a corresponding list and description of three cities, regions, or landmarks.
Students will clearly show the connection between the location and three important historical figures. Exploring the relationships between important people and the historical location requires students to think deeper about what they have learned. To complete this panel of the brochure, students will need to:
- State one historically accurate fact that connects three influential figures to the historical location.
Additional Lesson Components
- Research Guide : Providing students with a research guide will assist them in finding and recording relevant information for their travel brochures. It will keep students focused and on-track throughout the research portion of the lesson.
- Bibliography : Encourage students to record their sources of information by providing them with a bibliography template. Easybib.com is a free online resource students can use when composing their bibliographies. It will generate citations for all the major writing formats.
- Brochure Directions and Rubric : Ensure student understanding by providing clear directions and expectations for the historical brochure project. Ideas for rubric criteria include historical accuracy, completion, neatness, and effort.
- Examples : Showing students examples of past brochures is helpful, but not necessary. You can use examples to inspire students and give them a concrete idea of what the finished project might look like.

How to Make a Travel Brochure for a School Project
A homemade brochure can be an excellent showcase for students who want to exercise their artistic, writing and research skills. It is also a relatively easy project that can be made using materials found in most homes, or via almost any kind of graphic design software.
Things You'll Need
Letter size sheet of paper (8.5 inches by 11 inches)
Black ink pen
Step 1: Layout
The standard format for a brochure uses a letter sheet (standard printing size) folded twice, so it is divided into three equal parts. When folded this way it is the perfect size for fitting into a business envelope. A letter size sheet is 8.5 by 11 inches, so you can mark the folds at the 3.7 inch and 7.3 inch measurements along the long side of the paper. Once it is folded you can see that there are six panels for you to fill, three on the front and three on the back of the sheet. Use a pencil to mark your template so you know where each panel is when the sheet is unfolded. For example, you can write "front cover" on the front panel, "inside left," "inside center" and so forth.

Step 2: Research
The purpose of a brochure is to sell something or to inform, whether that is an idea, a product or a destination. For a travel brochure you will want to research the destination carefully and thoroughly. Investigate the major attractions and think about why someone might want to visit there. You will also want to find beautiful and relevant pictures to fill your panels. Look in travel magazines for inspiration and for pictures to cut out and use. If you find some ideal pictures in a book, you can photocopy or trace them for use in your brochure.
Step 3: Writing
Your language should be simple yet persuasive. If you are completing an assignment, make sure you include all the information required. Then you can plan out what else you need.
- Your cover panel should have a simple title in large writing. You might also want to add a catchphrase.
- The panel that folds inside the brochure should have your "big picture" information, outlining the basics of the destination and why someone should go there.
- The three inside panels can either be used as a single big panel or divided up with separate information. For example, if you are presenting trip packages, this is where you will outline each option.
- The back of the brochure (the center back panel) can be used for more detailed information, such as directions, prices or regulations. This is also a great place for statistics, such as how many people visit each year, average temperatures, peak travel times, etc.
Step 4: Pictures
Your pictures should be bold and crisp, without too much detail. They need to be easy to understand on a small, crowded surface as well as interesting and clear at a glance. Choose pictures that are relevant to whatever you are promoting in the brochure. You can cut pictures from old newspapers and magazines, photocopy them from books or print them from the Internet. Tracing or freehand drawing can also be very effective, particularly if you have odd spaces to fill in your brochure.
Try to pick photos that will not clash with each other. They also need to be relatively different. Don't just use six pictures of the beach. Add pictures with people enjoying different activities.
Step 5: Finishing Touches
It can be tempting to let the pictures overwhelm the text, but you need both to find balance for a good brochure. It is best to keep the text in small chunks, with dark lettering on a bright background. You might want to write out your text roughly and cut it out in small boxes so you can determine the right positioning on your brochure.
- Use your template to shift around your pictures and the blocks of text until you are happy with the result.
- Mark the positions of all your images and text blocks on the template.
- Use a fresh sheet of paper to make the final brochure. If you must mark it, use your pencil very lightly and erase the marks afterward.
- Carefully paste your pictures in place and use a black ink pen to write the text.
If you are worried about your handwriting, you can write your text on a separate sheet and then cut and paste it into place. Another option is to type your words on a computer and print them as a block of text. Use the margin settings on your word processing software to manage the width of your text blocks.
Step 6: Computer-Designed Brochure
If you are using a computer, it can still be very helpful to have a physical template in front of you. This makes it easier to visualize how the final brochure will look and where everything should fit. You can make a brochure in any graphics design program and most word processing programs, including Microsoft Word .
- When starting a new file, choose an A4 or letter size template and set it to landscape.
- You will probably have to make two files, one for the front of your sheet and one for the back.
- You can either print them double-sided on a single sheet or put the sheet through twice to be printed on both sides.
If you don't have a color printer, you can design your brochure on your computer with the text in place and leave spaces for the pictures. After you print, you can cut relevant pictures from magazines and paste them into place.
