Step 1
Plan and map your route
On the Internet, research the geography of the approved country you have chosen. Use the internet to help you identify
places you might want to visit, how you might take a trip there, the differences among areas, etc. For example, you can
visit the official Web site of your country, use an online encyclopedia, use the Geography link on the netcountry.com Web
site http://www.netcountry.com/countrys/index.html, or type locations in a search engine to help you identify the places
that fit the lesson and interest you.
Make a Microsoft Word document that lists places you want to visit. Check to make sure that the locations you have entered
include:
All of the countries that your animal is found in
In the countries your animal is found in find:
o One or more major cities with populations of 1,000,000+ (if the country you choose has one)
o One or more cities with population between 500,000 and 999,999 (if the country you choose has one)
o The location where the majority of your animals numbers are found
o Two other major areas where your animal can be found
o The country capital
o The area where major research is happening to save the animal
Four or more other areas of geographical interest within the country. Look for places beyond the familiar tourist
attractions, for example, an old growth forest, a historic site like an abandoned mining town, the geographic center, the
highest peak, and so on. If you do choose a familiar attraction, research its history or try to find unusual information
about it.

Student: ...........................................................................Class: ............................ Teacher: ........................................................................ Due date: .................................

Part of the cost and energy associated with managing an endangered organization is the need to communicate with
people customers, clients, suppliers and the general public. People relate more efficiently to a business that has a
distinct and easily recognisable identity in the marketplace for example, by its logo, sign or stationery.

Instructions for Logo


Imagine that you are the CEO of your Endangered Animals organization, which you want to promote. To do this, you
need to develop a business logo and slogan. These will appear on all your stationery and on all promotional products
associated with your business. To be most effective, your logo and slogan should communicate an immediate message
about the type of business it is, and the services it offers.

Your logo should be created in Microsoft Word and it must have the following:
1. The name of the organization
2. Good color design to be able to make all of the following using the same design
- a one color - multi shade design
- the same design but in black and white
- the same design but full color
3. A background that is made from 3 or more shapes
4. An image of your animal (may be animated/vector style or real)
5. Looks good in all of the following sizes:
- 1" x 1"
- 2" x 2"
-.5" x .5"
6. Create one document that has the 9 files on it (3 colors each in 3 sizes)
7. Group the logo together so it can be duplicated and adjusted

NAME__________________________________________PERIOD________CLASS____________________________

Assignment 9: T-Shirt and Organization Products


Instructions for T-Shirt

At a minimum designs must have the following items:
1. logo
2. address
3. phone number
4. Image
5. Tag Line (slogan) - this must be unique

After having designed your logo, slogan, and t-shirt choose at least three of the following suggestions to display these
on. Create word documents that show how the objects would feature your logo and slogan in Microsoft Word though
it may be easier to do so by hand drawing your image first and then creating them in Microsoft Word. Remember that
the way you represent your logo and slogan (colors and design) must always be the same on all business and
promotional items.

1. For this project you will turn in 3 items: a letter that is formatted as stated in the top paragraph, a letter that is
formatted without the header and page number, and a properly addressed and stamped envelope. It is your
responsibility to get the envelope your project is not turned in without it.
2. Write a letter that requests information on your topic. You may choose more than one organization and do a
second letter for extra credit. In your letter you should tell them who you are, why you are requesting the
information (not because I am making you), what you are going to do with the information, and ask at least 23 questions about your topic. A company will be far more likely to send information if you seem very
interested.
3. Go on the Internet and find the address for the company. It is important that you find the address for
someone that will be able to help you going to far over a persons head or below a persons head. Look for
the customer service address if you can find it, as they will be the most likely to be able to help you. Make sure
you thank them for their time and efforts to help you.
Use the section on letter writing to follow the proper formatting techniques for your letter. The components you must
have are as follows: date, salutation, company address, your address, main paragraph, body paragraph, conclusion
paragraph, closing, signature, and printed name. Make sure you are formatting the letter as seen in the book including
