During this adventure, students will prepare for a travel tour with Grandma and Grandpa Allen and their grandchildren, Claire and Jared. Their itinerary includes Beijing, Xi’an, a cruise down the Yangtze River and on to Shanghai.
Students will become engaged as they figure out the budget for this exotic vacation, and learn about travel vaccinations along with cultural dos and don’ts. Students will also create their own travel agency and a Welcome to China! brochure.
With plenty of time cruising on the Yangtze, you will participate in the ship’s activities. The enriching hands-on program involves students in activities that help them explore China’s culture, history and geography. You may be surprised at some of the inventions and discoveries! Join the kids in their culminating activity - a Chinese Fair!
Printables, answer keys, arts and crafts, directions for creating a Welcome to China! brochure, rubric, resources, supply list and glossary are also included in this integrated packet. Several common core elements enhance the learning experience as students visit The Land of the Dragon.
Embrace the adventure that is the fascinating mystery of China! Mah Jong anyone?
