This project requires students to plan a road trip within the United States. It covers many aspects of Geography (using roads, directions, finding attractions, etc.) and requires use of Mathematics for budgeting.
Students will plot out the cities they plan to go to, the hotels they will stay at, the attractions they will visit, and miles driven. They will also write journal entries and create a postcard from one of their cities.
They will use actual prices (computers will be needed for research) and will create a budget. Once all research is done, different graphs will be made to show where their money was spent.
All information is presented on a poster board when finished.
Document includes budget tables, detailed descriptions on how to make graphs, and step by step instructions for the students to follow.
