I use this activity as a way to help my students become more familiar with converting between the English and Metric systems. Students will need internet access so they can look up information about a favorite car of their choice, hotel information, and entertainment information in the city of their choice. I feel if the students are more interested in a topic, they will learn it better so that is why I have them design a vacation for themselves and a buddy. They will research values in the English measuring system and then convert those numbers into Metric values.
