In this activity, students will plan an Around the World vacation to ten places of their choosing. Specific instructions include "rules" which explicitly state how students need to plan their world trip (i.e., no more than two stops in any one country, all continents need to be visited, and the same direction must be maintained during the entire trip).
Students will plot their trips on the map included in this lesson while documenting latitude/longitude, distances between the steps of the journey, reasons for traveling to each particular place, etc. Examples of expectations are provided for students.
Vacation Time - Around the World is a great activity that combines student choice with world geography, some history and a bit of math!
