I love traveling, and I want my students to love it and experience it, too...even if just on paper.
This is a vacation planning project that I do with students at the end of the school year. It is always a hit. It's main components incorporate research, technology and math. After "returning from vacation", I incorporate writing and speaking by having the students write a letter to a friend, a diary entry, or a personal narrative about the vacation.
Happy Planning and Traveling...
