Take your students on a winter holidays adventure around the world! Think Virtual Field Trip + WebQuest! This activity is LOW PREP to save you time! Students work with partners or a team to visit 6 winter holiday destinations and attractions around the world. With each destination, students use Google Earth and various websites to explore and gather information. Students complete a destination ticket sheet where they demonstrate their ability to locate an answer to a question with efficiency, as well as integrate information using words and visuals. Once each destination ticket is complete, students must record the location on the map provided within their passport and check their answers with the teacher to receive their next destination ticket.

All answer keys are provided, a grading rubric is included, as well as 5 extension worksheets that dive deeper into the destinations. The extension printables work well for early finishers or as a wrap up activity. This activity involves very little prep!

Please note: Students will use computers to complete this activity. Specifically, students will need access to Google Earth, and the websites provided. You will want to ensure ahead of time that the websites are not blocked by your school’s server. Also, websites change from time to time. I have done my best to include questions that will make sense even if a website changes, however I will also do my best to ensure that this resource is up to date and reflects any major website changes.
