A unit to get your students ready for summer vacation! Students will plan a week long vacation with a $500.00 budget. Students use the internet to find locations, map route, find hotels and attractions. Students learn how to calculate mileage, map their trip, figure taxes and tips and budget money. Students complete mini reports on locations visiting as well as attractions. I use the lesson with gifted 4th grade students but it could easily be used for grades as high as 8th grade. My students love this unit and are excited about coming to class each day to complete it.
