The students love this project! For the last few years my students have anticipated this project! Basically, they take a virtual trip down the complete Pan American Highway!
Students begin in Canada, go through the United States, and since I teach Spanish, they spend most of their time researching destinations in Latin America. Since every student has a different interest every project is different. I even learn about several new destinations!
Students can use a number of resources to complete the project. Most prefer Power Points or posterboards, but my favorite is Google Earth. You can decide what is appropriate for your classes.
