T.R.A.V.E.L. (Teaching Real Adventures Visiting Earth's Lands).
Speckmann, Marilyn; Main, Jeanne
Incorporating social studies, science, reading, writing, and the arts, this project encourages students in the elementary and junior high grades to create models of research and create the particular elements of the country through arts, crafts, foods, and dress. If the whole school participates and creates many different foreign lands, students begin to understand what it would be like to travel to a foreign country. Benefits of this program include providing students with a better understanding and knowledge of different cultures through the interaction that takes place. Concluding this guide are recipes for modeling dough and clays and a sample passport application for students to fill out. (JAG)
