Begin by using a KWHL chart to record what you know about each of these West African Kingdoms. You need to make one chart for each kingdom. You may also want to make a brainstorm web showing your ideas for information that a travel promotion might contain. For instance, you may want to highlight major cities, political leaders, religion, education, the economy, or climate.
Once you have decided what information you need, you may wish to divide up your tasks depending on how many people are on your team. For example, one person might be the historian who records information about the other two kingdoms. Another person might be in charge of collecting graphics, pictures, and other visual material for use in the project. Or you may choose to divide your team into "experts" on the various aspects of the culture, such as religion, economy, and government.
One suggested division of labor would be to have each team member select one or two topics to cover from the first section below (traveler's guide) and three to five topics from section two (experiences offered) depending on the size of your team .
I. TRAVELER'S GUIDE
II. EXPERIENCES OFFERED
