I bet that question has you thinking, right?
With the safer at home orders stretching across the United States, teachers and students would give anything to be able to be back at school, or to be able to go anywhere. But that is not reality.
So, we got to thinking. Wouldn’t it be great for our students to plan “A Vacation of a Lifetime” from their homes. To be able to dream about a destination that they would love to go to during this time of isolation?
That is why we have created our Google Drive compatible “A Vacation of a Lifetime” resource. This project will allow your students to use a pretend budget of $10,000 to travel anywhere in the world!
Sounds fun, right? Well, it will be! Students will get to research transportation, lodging, destinations and so much more. They will be using their math, reading, writing, researching, and technology skills to plan out their dream vacation. Take a look at our opening scenario below!
This is perfect for distance learning, and best yet, everything has been created for you. We have detailed teacher tips, student online handouts, certificates and even a rubric to use. This project could take a week or two for them to complete, so is great for an end of the year project too. Take a look at some student pages that are included in the resource below.
We have included a vacation helper document that will guide your students through the process too!
There is also an easy to use teacher rubric to assess your students!
Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to let you and your students dream about “A Vacation of a Lifetime.”
