Step 1: While students are waiting for a response to their letters,
they should design the layout for the Resource Guide. Each student’s page can
have a different layout.
Step 2: A cover can be designed together as a class, or each
student can draw a cover and the class can vote on which one to use as the
Official Resource Guide cover.
Step 3: Once students receive their responses, have them create an
entry page for their organization.There
may be students who do not receive a response to their letter. Those students
who do not receive a response can create an entry page for another organization
using information readily available from other sources (the internet, talking
to someone on the phone, etc.).
Step 4: Assemble the entry pages into a binder or laminate and bind
them into a book format. Make sure that all brochures, flyers and newsletters
are included as well. If you have the resources, it is best to make sure that
each student receives a photocopy of the resource guide to take home to their
parents or guardians. This will help promote physical activity within families.
Step 5: Students should give a brief presentation (approximately 2
minutes) about their community location activity.They will summarize how their research
