Students "pack" their luggage in preparation for an imaginary trip.
Provide students with an opportunity to share places that they have traveled to that may be far from home. Assist students with finding these places on a world map or globe.
Ask children to identify types of transportation they could take to get to some of the places they have visited and how this is organized. What types of preparations go into planning a trip far from home?
Invite a local travel agent to speak with the class about organizing trips, as well as sharing some of their travel experiences with students. Prior to the visit, ask students to think about what types of questions they might want to ask the guest and what information they might need in order to plan their imaginary trip.
Organize students into small groups. Have each group identify a place they want to visit. Assist each group with locating their selection on a world map.
In order to prepare for their trips, students will need luggage and identification tags on their luggage. Using Crayola® Washable Crayons, have each student decorate the front and back of a manila file folder. This will be the child's imaginary suitcase. Ask students to write their names on their suitcases. Encourage them to crate travel scenes, designs, and/or show their favorite ways to travel on their suitcases.
Using Crayola Scissors, have students cut a piece of construction paper to create a suitcase handle. Glue the handle to the top of one side of luggage using Crayola School Glue. Ask students to glue both sides of their suitcases and fold the file folder closed. Allow to dry overnight.
Once the glue is completely dry, it is time for students to make their identification tags. Using construction paper, have students trace the shape of the luggage tag. Inform students that they are to write their names, addresses, and phone numbers on their tags. Assist with student writing as needed.
Have students punch a hole in their luggage tags. Thread yarn through the hole and attach the tags to their luggage. Put all of the luggage on display. Provide time in the school day for students to review each other's luggage designs and tags.
