In this project, students are required to choose and research one of the world's major countries in order to make vacation plans. They are given a budget and must plan out, step-by-step the details of the trip to include: the cost of the plane trip, when and where they will fly to and from, forms of currency, national flag, population, etc. They will also identify and summarize at least three major landmarks and/or monuments, describe the foods, traditions, etc. and then compare and contrast the chosen country to the United States.
Note: This is a series of graphic organizers that will get your children started on the project of your choice. You may instruct students to create a power point presentation, photo album, infomercial, travel brochure, etc.
