The Great American Roadtrip


The Great American Roadtrip – Fall Semester 2020

Grade/Age: 3rd–6th
Sep 14, 2020 – Dec 14, 2020—Mon
Period: 10:00 AM - 10:55 AM, Social Studies
Instructor: Salma Zarook

Young travelers, get ready for an adventure! During this class, we will embark on a figurative journey through the 50 states of America - in an RV! That means choosing an RV according to a given budget, tracking our expenses, saving up our salaries (we have remote jobs!), figuring out how much it costs to fix a flat tire and understanding the logistics of getting from place to place. As we make our way through the states, we will be learning about the culture, nature and history that characterizes each state. We will learn how to research and present information effectively and will document our thoughts and experiences with frequent postcards home. While we make our way through the country, we will encounter all sorts of mishaps like dead ends in Nevada, hurricanes in Florida and bear encounters in Alaska, prompting us to problem solve and think critically. We will be researching, writing, calculating and presenting as we go on this trip of a lifetime!

Class Fee: $210.00
