My 3rd grade students did a "road trip" around the world in 8 days. Every day we went to a new place in the United States. We explored Salem, Massachusetts,NYC, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, St. Louis, Missouri, San Antonio, Texas, the Grand Canyon, Hollywood, California, and Hawaii. Each day started with a quote of the day, followed by a powerpoint about the location. We then read a story about the location. After that we went into the other lessons of the day, still based around the location. We ended Reading class with a journal entry. Some sample activities we did were writing post cards about our adventures, making our own flat stanley's, and posting stickers on a map of where we ventured each day.
