Tour Guides

The responsibilities for the two of you are tremendous. You will be responsible for choosing the places we will visit on our trip. You must decide what are educational and fun sights to see. You must also keep in mind the monetary costs of each of the places you choose.

There are several links to help you look at the different sites you could see. You should look at each closely and see if they are educationally relevant to what you have learned this year. You must also make sure that their times of business correspond to the day we leave on the trip, Wednesday June 9, 1999. You must also make sure that the place you wish to visit can hold the number of people going on the trip (132).
