This no-prep, engaging end-of-year project challenges your students to plan and document a road trip to five National Park™ destinations across the United States. This project features real-world connections and opportunities for student choice. Students need access to the internet to complete this project.


Your students will complete the entire project on Google Slides™. It is easy to "chunk" this project over multiple days or weeks. Post to Google Classroom™ and students will be ready to go. The slides will guide students step-by-step through the following tasks:

Task #1 - choosing destinations

Task #2 - describing attractions at each destination

Task #3 - calculating mileage and gasoline costs

Task #4 - writing journal entries

Task #5 - finding pictures from the destinations

Please click on the green preview button to see a preview of all 26 slides included.


Directions on all slides are all fully editable and an editable rubric is included. Please ensure your school server allows access to the following websites linked on the Google Slides™:

- https://www.nps.gov/aboutus/national-park-system.htm

- https://www.nps.gov/findapark/index.htm

- https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/findacar.shtm

- https://gasprices.aaa.com


- When assigning with Google Classroom™, be sure to use the "Make a Copy for Each Student" feature prior to posting for students.

- If using this project with distance learning, it is also recommended that teachers provide students with mini-deadlines along the way (also called "chunking") to help students with time management.
