In this document you will find materials for a road trip end of unit activity. I did this with my 6th graders for the end of our North America unit, but it could work with almost any geographical area, so I didn't put a specific place in.
Students are directed to, as a group, plan a trip around a certain region, stopping at specific types of places. I give categories (such as a historic landmark and a museum), but let them tailor it to their own interests.
Then they have to figure out different budgets, which can be added/removed as you see fit: fuel costs, food, hotels, and entrance fees to different attractions.
The students have a set amount of money, but then must write a persuasive letter to a family member or friend asking for more money. I have included a template if needed.
Finally, the students can create a digital presentation of the different places they wish to visit, including pictures, to show the rest of the class when they present their trip.
The students seemed to really enjoy this, and had to work together, especially when different students wanted to go to different places. It was really eye-opening for them to figure out how much these trips would cost them just in terms of gas and food!
