This project puts a new twist on the state and country reports that students have grown accustomed to. Now instead of students simply researching about a place, this project encourages them to 'travel' to their destination and turn it into a vacation! This project ties Math, Geography, and Writing together!
Students will choose their state or country to travel to and will be given a budget to work with as they plan their vacation. They will have to account for their flight, hotel, car rentals, food, attractions, and any thing else they may need to pay for on a vacation. There is a ledger and checks included in this package for the students to fill out and keep track of their money.
Then the students get to research about this destination and any activities or attractions to see and do there. After all the research is done, the students will create a scrapbook of their vacation.
Here is what you will receive with the product download:

This project is geared towards 5th and 6th grade students, but could be adapted for others. I included a notes page based on some things I did with my class. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions feel free to email me. If you find any errors that need to be fixed please contact me before leaving feedback so I can fix them and send you the new version.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by. Make sure you take a look at some of my other cross curricular projects I have posted.
