Global Field Trip

Throughout the year, our class will be following a family as they travel across the world over the span of 12 months.  Aside from reading and discussing the family’s adventures, we will be working through different assignments and even communicating (hopefully) with them as we learn about different countries and cultures from around the world.  In our classroom, we have dedicated a bulletin board to The Global Field Trip where we will be updating the family’s travels.  We will be using this board as as a starting point for our own in-class adventures and discoveries.


Here is a link to the Global Field Trip Blog site.


Assignment 1:  (The 5 Ws)  Answering the 5 Ws and getting to know the World.


Assignment 2:  (Researching a Country)  Use the link to “Culture Grams” to help you in your research.

Assignment 3:  (Paragraph Writing) We read about how our traveling friends only took what they could carry and we actually got to explore a packed a carry-on bag.  After our clothes and toiletry supplies, there isn’t much room left!

Your third assignment:  Your task is to create a web using Smart Ideas (pictures and words) that outlines your top three picks for what you would take with your on a year long trip around the world.  Remember to explain WHY you’d take your “things” with you.

If I Was Traveling Around Torund I Would Take

If I was traveling around rotund I would take 3 small things. I would bring a tablet computer,an iPhone and a robot dog.  First i would bring a tablet computer because it is both an iPad and a computer it would and save me space.  Second I would bring an iPhone because you can do a lot stuff with it like take selfless, talk with people read news and watch YouTube it also has a compass, flashlight, Google map and more. Lastly I would bring a cool rob because you can tell him to do a front flip, jump, go pick up ball and it eat a lot of buttons!  So This is all would take.
