Here are some ideas of what to do with this article!
1. Allow students to guess what they think would be the top 50 cities to see in the world. Give them a world map such as the one attached from Maps International. Allow them to mark up the areas of the world in which they believe to at the top of the list. Students may work in groups or individually!
2. Either handout the article on the Top 50 Places to Visit, or put images and captions onto a PPT. Go through the list and have students compare how many they have correct. Ask groups or students how many they got correct off of their list compared to the article!
3. Create your own top travel list/travel book as a class using places your students have visited. To do this, poll students by having them enter their top 5 travel destinations onto a wordle! As you repeat destinations, that word will become the largest and give you an indicator of what are the top travel destinations of your class. See example below!
4. Great activity to get to know your students either the first few weeks back or within a travel unit!
Use the TL to meet these connections!
1. I can identify destinations and major attractions on a
travel brochure (NOVICE-HIGH)
2. I can understand basic information on travel brochures (INTERMEDIATE-MID)
3. I can exchange general information about leisure and
travel, such as the world’s most visited sites or most
beautiful places to visit. (ADVANCED-MID)
