Product Description
Students are going to research and visit a historic/famous landmark in the United States. They will have to travel to the state of the landmark, stay in a hotel and pay for the cost of meals. Students research their favorite landmarks, use math skills, and learn about these important places in the US.

This PBL unit incorporates 21st Century skills with challenging, engaging, and creative activities. There are lots of opportunity for differentiation. Activities go along with your nonfiction book study.
