Why Lesson Planet?
Eighth graders research tourism in their state, specifically whitewater rafting and ways to increase tourist revenue. In groups, 8th graders research whitewater rafting, where it is available in their state and advertisements available to tell others about the activity. Through the internet, students compare whitewater rafting in their state to other states. They brainstorm ideas for further expanding the whitewater industry in their state and create their own advertisement.
