Process

1. Begin by researching your first city. Look at all the places that you can go but keep in mind the historical and cultural information behind each site. You want the group to learn something as well enjoy themselves.

2. You have been given a budget to work with. Using this guideline, book a few places to visit. Describe each one in a few sentences in your travel journal.

3. After your journal for the first city has been completed, move on to the next place. Vary your choices so you are not always going to the same type of museums!

4. MIDPOINT: Get together with the other activity coordinators in the class. Compare the information that you have gathered so far: typical activities in each region, types of entertainment, prices, travel journal, what's easy or hard to find...Share ideas and information for the second half of the project. Evaluate each other according to the grading rubric.

5. Go back and make any necessary changes for your part of the trip.

6. On the final day of your travel journal, reflect on what you would have kept the same, what you would have changed, and any other information that stood out.
