Topic Mini-Research Real World Activity

    Your family is going on your dream vacation to anywhere in the United States. As you drive to your destination you will be making several stops. You may stop to get gas, eat, or see something special. You will want to keep a scrapbook of the interesting things you did on your vacation. Each time you stop, you will write down where you stopped, what you bought, how much it cost, and what time you stopped. You are going to use the Identifying Time link to help you draw the clock and the Change Maker link to draw how much money you spent. Having this scrapbook will help you remember your dream vacation forever, so be sure to do a great job!
