  • 1. Science- Bristol Name: _________________ BIOMES TRAVEL BROCHURE PROJECT Project Due: September 8, 2013 Purpose: You are a travel agent selling vacation packages to tourists around the world. Create a creative brochure promoting a Biome (Tundra, Taiga, Chaparral, Rainforest, Temperate Deciduous Forest, Temperate Grassland, Desert, Tropical Rainforest, Savanna, Desert, Freshwater Ecosystems, Marine Ecosystem/Coral Reefs) using the information you gained through your Internet research worksheet. You may also use additional information from the Internet as long as it is approved by the teacher and cited as a source material. The brochure may be humorous or serious, but all the data should be accurate! Suggested & Validated Sources: www.mbgnet.net www.blueplanetbiomes.org/world_biomes.htm www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/glossary/gloss5/biome Directions: 1. Choose a specific location you would like to promote as a unique and pleasurable travel experience. Identify its biome and describe traits of the biome in your travel brochure. Use as much information as possible, including: climate, location (continent and latitude), major land or water features, and types of plants and animals living there. 2. Create a two or three-fold brochure in either Microsoft Word or Microsoft Publisher to list your information and include graphics, artwork, photos or images. a. Create a new document and choose the File drop down menu. Click on Page Setup and choose the Landscape option. b. If you already know how to use Publisher, choose a “bi-fold” or “tri-fold” brochure. If not, stick with MS Word and go to the Format drop down menu at the top and choose
  • 2. Science- Bristol Name: _________________ Columns. Then click on “Two” or “Three” and OK. Make sure all the columns are the same width. You will fold the brochure between the columns. You will have to make two pages, one for the back side and one for the front side. You may paste these sides together or print them on a 2 sided sheet. c. Include at least three photos, drawings or other types of artwork that help describe and promote your biome vacation spot. d. Include interesting or unusual facts that tourists may not know about. e. One column or fold of the brochure (which must be visible on the front when folded) must include the Title and a Slogan for your biome vacation. This is also a good location for a photo or graphic. f. Another column or fold of the brochure (which must be visible on the back when folded) must include your name, class period, and all sources of information including website addresses, text books, etc. g. The remaining columns/folds of the brochure should be informational and convince potential tourists to spend money on your trip! h. No columns/folds should be left blank! 3. Information in your brochure may include: * Geographic location * Weather & climate * Flora (plants) and Fauna (animals) * Predator/prey relationships * Ecological issues or concerns * Human impacts * Diseases * Types of foods * Landforms, bodies of water (or lack of), etc.
