“Oh the Places You’ll Go” is not only perfect for March is Reading Month, Read Across America, or a "Celebration of Seuss" Week. but the story is also appropriate at the end of the year, when students are advancing into a new grade or graduating!

With that in mind, I decided to combine reading and writing with a bit of geography, with these super-fun “Oh, the Places I’LL Go!” crafts.

Teacher Comments:

  • "The resource is very engaging and easy to modify for groups."
  • "So much fun and a great display."
  • "Such a cute activity and easy to follow."

Students think of a place they’d like to travel to. Money is no object, so the world is literally at their feet.

Older students can do a bit of research to find out about a fascinating place they’d like to travel to. (Thus the geography connection, as well as great research & technology practice!)

There are two writing prompt craftivities in this packet.

One is a file folder suitcase.

Students color and trim the suitcase, then glue it to the front of a file folder, which flips down to reveal their completed 3-page writing prompt.

The writing provides an interesting way to practice & reinforce the “5 Ws + 1 H” question words in a fun way:

Where would you like to travel to?”, "When would you like to go?", "Why do you want to go there?", "Who do you want to go with?", "What do you want to see?" and "How do you want to get there?"

Be sure and check the PREVIEW to see lots of completed samples.

I’ve also included a poster with the questions, which you can use to introduce your lesson.

The 2nd choice is a “Travel Trunk.” This booklet has 6 pages to it, where students answer the same questions listed above.

I’ve also included a blank page template, so that students can consolidate their answers to one page, or write longer answers if they want.

The trunk booklet can be left as is, or topped with a "student reading” graphic, (4 options available. )

Students color and trim, then glue to the top of their trunk booklet.

Another option, is to glue their trunk booklet to the base of a stack of suitcases, which can also be topped with one of the ”students reading a book” graphics.

You decide what’s best for your kiddos, or give children a choice. A luggage tag for a student’s name, adds some 3D pizzazz.

As always, patterns come in both black & white for students, as well as color, so that teachers can quickly & easily make an example to share.

Completed projects make a terrific bulletin board or hallway display.

I’ve included a variety of posters, as well as letters for the caption: “Oh, the Places We’ll Go!” to add extra pizzazz.

Teacher IDEA:

  • "I used as a good Open House activity. Students enjoyed thinking about the future."


While designing the first “Oh the places” HAT craft, I decided to divide things up and make a separate packet with a young child reading, as well as another packet featuring older students, instead of putting everything into one purchase.

By making 3 separate packets, teachers can choose which craft is most appropriate for their students and grade level. This also keeps the price down.

While the writing prompt CRAFT is different in all 3 of the packets, they do include the SAME posters & letters for the bulletin board caption.
