Detroit Tour Project - Mrs. Partovich's Third Grade Class

601 views

Published on

Third graders at Hillel Day School of Metropolitan Detroit learn about the city of Detroit through a bus tour and through research. In school, each student researches the significance and history of a specific place in Detroit. Students learn to summarize, take notes, and turn their notes into a well crafted paragraph. Each student then designs a slide in PowerPoint to teach others about the importance of their place. The slides include information from students’ research, from personal knowledge, and from the actual tour of Detroit that the third graders take in the spring.

The work for this project was done in students’ classrooms and in their weekly computer class with Ms. Rothfeld.

  2. 2. Detroit Institute of Arts<br />Welcome to the one and only spectacular, amazing, wonderful Detroit Institute of Arts! I think from the name you know that The Detroit Institute of Arts is an institute of arts, but not only does it have paintings, it also has sculptures, collages, masks, mummies, antiques, drawings, writings and more! The Detroit Institute of Arts, or the DIA, is a great family place because it has music, food and theater for you and your family. One very interesting fact about the DIA is it has over 65,000 pieces of art. Another interesting fact is it has one of the largest and most important art collections in the whole entire world! That was some fascinating information about the DIA.<br />Hanna Lupovitch<br />
  3. 3. Hart Plaza<br />Hart Plaza is a spectacular place to visit.People can watch fireworks there, specificallyon July 4th. Festivals are also held there. In addition, people can walk on the river front. It is part of the Detroit Harbor and ships can dock there. It is near the Renaissance Center. It is located on the spot where Antoine de Cadillac landed to found Detroit! You should visit Hart Plaza.<br />Judah Karesh<br />

There are a lot of other great foods, too. Ford Field also hosted a Final Four and a Super Bowl. A wall shows the Detroit sky line. You should go there to see sports events and concerts. It is a new stadium. <br />You should visit there. Go Lions!<br />Will Bloomberg<br />
  5. 5. Fox Theater!<br />Visiting the wonderful FOX THEATER is a great way to learn and have fun with your family. The Fox Theater opened on September 21, 1928! The Fox Theater is a historical land mark. That means if a company wants to tear the place down they cannot because it is illegal. The Fox Theater is very beautiful and a good place to work and visit. Did you know that there is a 3,600 square foot lobby covered by the largest wool rug ever made by American manufacturers? It weighs approximately 3,000 pounds! I think that there are very unique and beautiful, fun plays there! I love the Fox Theater and I think you will too!<br />By: NiaKepes<br />
  6. 6. Detroit Historical Museum<br />The Detroit Historical Museum is a great place to visit in Detroit. The museum was built in 1928. It tells the history of Detroit.

At the Detroit Opera House you can do many things: you can watch a Broadway play, watch the circus, listen to a beautiful song, go to the theater, or see a cool picture! Now I will tell you some unique things about the Detroit Opera House. It has entertained Detroit for over 8 decades and it is the 5th largest theater in the whole wide world. Isn’t that cool?<br />Elisha Cooper<br />
  8. 8. Motown Museum <br />The spectacular Motown Museum is a place where you can learn all about music. The impressive Motown Museum has a fabulous recording studio. Did you know many famous people recorded at the most amazing Motown Museum in the recording studio? Motown Museum is necessary to Detroit because it has helped many famous artists become famous. Stevie Wonder and the Jackson Five are among others who have recorded there. I think people go to the remarkable Motown Museum because it is interesting to see the studio. I think the Motown Museum is a great place to go.<br />Hannah Stryk<br />
  9. 9. Ambassador Bridge<br />The Ambassador Bridge is a sight to see. It has spectacular lights that shine at night. It opened in 1926 and took two years to build. People go on the bridge to get to Canada and back to Detroit. The bridge is 15,000 square feet. If you want to see Canada, come to the Ambassador Bridge. It is a sensational place for Detroit.<br />By Jack Katz<br />
  10. 10. Cobo Conference Center<br />. <br />The Cobo Conference Center is the best place to visit. The Auto Show and the Boat Show are two important events that are held at the Cobo Center.

  12. 12. The Bonstelle Theater Wayne State University<br />The Bonstelle Theater is a fabulous place to visit. The Bonstelle Theater produces Wayne State plays. The Bonstelle Theater was originally Temple Beth El, which is a shul, from 1902-1922. It was built by Albert Kahn in 1902. It was the Bonstelle Playhouse from 1922-1951. It became part of Wayne State in 1951. It was the biggest shul in Detroit until 1920. You might want to go there because it is one of our country’s best theaters. You would also like to visit if you are a fan of plays. The Bonstelle Theater is a great place to visit.<br />Jacob S. <br />
  13. 13. Comerica Park<br />Welcome to the one and only awesome Comerica Park! At Comerica Park, you can go on a huge ferris wheel.

It has over 400,000 books and three floors! The DPL also had different locations at different times. The first one opened in 1865 and people started building the current building in 1915. I’d say that if you like to read, then you have no choice other than to go to the DPL, so go today!<br />Eli Yazdi<br />
  15. 15. The Music Hall<br />I am going to tell you about the Music Hall. The MusicHall is a place where people sing, play music, and put on plays.

I can tell thatpeoplelike it for the singing, music, and plays.Wow! The Music Hall is such a nice place! <br />Ava Rose Janowitz<br />
  16. 16. The Renaissance Center<br /> <br />The Renaissance Center is a fun place to visit! The Renaissance Center is special because it is the tallest building in Detroit. Also, people work at the Renaissance Center. At the Renaissance Center there are so many different activities to do like dance competitions, modeling shows, and there is so much more I can’t name all of them. There is a Birmingham Deli, Coney, Burger King, Dental Health Center, and there are so many more. Someone would want to visit it because it has dance competitions there and there is a hotel at the Renaissance Center. That is why someone would want to go to the Renaissance Center.<br />Aerin Fink<br />
  17. 17. Spirit of Detroit<br />The “Spirit of Detroit” is a wonderful, big, green, giant statue in Detroit. Sometimes people visit this fantabulous sight and stare in amazement! The “Spirit of Detroit” is 26 ft. tall and is often known as the “Jolly Green Giant.” And get this, when the Wings won the Stanley Cup, the giant wore a huge Red Wings jersey to celebrate. The Green Giant was made in between the 1950s and the 1960s. The Spirit of Detroit is a great sight to see. <br />Alex A.<br />
  18. 18. Detroit Science Center<br />Welcome to the one and only, amazing, Detroit Science Center with the Imax Dome! Here at the Detroit Science Center, many people come, mostly for the cool exhibits such as dinosaurs, health, space, physical science, etc. And you can also see new and upcoming exhibits too. Remember, every time you come back something new will be there.<br />Scott Siegal<br />
  19. 19. Detroit People Mover<br />The Detroit People Mover is great for many things. One example is to view Detroit. It has windows. If you’re wondering how clean it is, it’s clean all right, and it is also quiet and comfortable. If you’re going to a Wings’ game but think Detroit’s too dangerous, stop at the closest stop to you and take the People Mover to the game. If your car is at the station, security makes you pay to get in. Are you worried about the space? The 12 cars can each fit about 40 people. Do the math. 40 x 12. That’s approximately 400 people. Expensive? Nope, 50 cents is a very low price in this economy. The people mover of Detroit goes 56 mph. That’s fast! The Detroit People Mover is a tremendous thing to ride.<br />Jacob E.<br />
