Pack your bags and grab your passports, we're going on a world tour!!!
We are going to take a virtual tour of six different countries on six different
continents. As you visit each country you will collect pictures,
information and maps to use to complete a scrapbook of your trip.
Once you've visited all the countries and you are safely back in America,
you can pick a place to learn more about on your own. Then, instead
of being a traveler, you can be an actual travel agent as you prepare a
country guide book and travel brochure to share with the class. BON

visiting, look through that section, thinking about what you've experienced.

about the country's culture.

in that country with life in America.
