Are you looking for an innovative way to integrate research, functional text, choice, and creativity into your class? The Plan Your Dream Trip unit is the answer! In this project, students will research a country and plan a trip to that country, using resources such as Expedia.com to find a flight and hotel room. They will create a 6 day itinerary and budget for their trip, write a research paper, and choose three choice menu projects based on their research. Finally, students will present their learning in a scrapbook! Although this unit is designed to be an individual project, it can be easily adapted to be a pairs or group assignment - just increase the number of choice menu projects each group or pair will need to complete! The unit also lends itself toward Social Studies connections, as the choice menu projects involve budgeting, map skills, time lines, and cultural studies.
This unit includes...
* A Teacher's Guide with Launch Page
