Holmes Regional Tourism Project

Welcome to the Holmes 4th Grade Regional Tourism Project Blog! This is the place for Project Managers to keep informed about the regions project. If you are checking this blog on your own, you are on top of things! Good job.

How to Use This Blog:
The purpose of the blog is to share information, ideas and questions. It is also a good place to create a list of links and good resources.

The first task is to help create a list of information about your role, group, and region. If you do not know the answer to these questions yet, you can also indicate that on the form, but please remember to find the information out fairly soon.

At the end of the day, the information received on the form will be wordled, in order to see who is already checking in. Great job and thanks for checking! -blogmaster

Here is the Social Studies Regions Project Description:
  • Your group has been selected to increase tourism to a specific region of the United States. Considering difficult financial times, gear your marketing to average Americans looking for a good value.
  • By working together as a team, you’ll create a final PowerPoint presentation, which will attract tourists to your assigned region. Your team will have two managers, two copywriters, two researchers, and two graphic designers.
  • Every successful advertising/marketing company needs a catchy name and attractive logo. Your group will create a company name and logo for itself.
  • As in every company, there will be meetings with members of your team to discuss ideas, resolve problems, and create the final presentation.
