Daily excursions to odd, mysterious, mindful, interesting, and unknown places in the United States is what MAP TRACKS is all about. Using a map of the United States, yarn and pushpins, students will select a card from a choice of 10 different categories, and either research the question, share what they already know about this land of ours, or take a trip to the designated place on the map, then tell the rest of the class everything they know about that one spot. It's a vacation without leaving the classroom.
Also in the packet is a week long unit entitled On the Road Again. Wait til you see what this entails.
All in all this 21 page packet is one sure way to create daily interest in the country we call home, and offers students different ways to visit places they have never thought of before.
Enjoy the trip!
