Day Four:

On day four you need to decide which colony your hotel will be located in and why people should stay at your hotel in the colony. Remember you want business so you need to convince people.

Day five:

Last minute work session. At the end of the class you will turn in all of your work. This will include your 6 graphic organizers, bibliography page, and your final product.

Day six and seven:

You will be presenting your final product to the 4th grade class and they will vote on the colony they would like to stay at. Keep in mind the presentation is what you are graded on, not the vote turnout.
