PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students will plan a week-long summer vacation with a partner or team. They will need to research flights, hotels, transportation, excursions, and dining options, and keep a spreadsheet of the unit and total costs for each part of their vacation. Students will use exchange rates to calculate costs in the currency of the country they're "traveling to" and calculate percent of money spent on each part of their trip.

A teacher's guide, student worksheets, technology-based extension ideas and a spreadsheet are included.
**2015 updates include generalization of the directions so no longer specific to Bay Area and students have freedom to plan trip wherever, updated extension ideas and an extension page for students, updates to the money/budget worksheet, and removal of travel insurance.

Included in a separate listing (because I can't figure out yet how to include them all in one listing) is a Powerpoint template for student presentations of their project.
