Create Souvenir Scrapbook Pages from Your United States Region Tour

By Beth Newingham on February 24, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

At each stop of our United States region tour, students are given a souvenir that will help them remember the place they visited. 

The souvenirs are often pictures that I find on the Internet and print out for the students, real brochures from the places we visit, or anything that makes sense depending on the tour stop. I just make sure that it is something that can eventually be glued onto their scrapbook pages. 

I have had a great deal of success contacting visitor centers or the actual tour stop (e.g., Mall of America) to request that they send us brochures or other souvenirs that I can give to the students. 

At the end of each region tour, the students use construction paper and decorative hole punches to design creative scrapbook pages on which they display the souvenirs they collected along the way.
