In this webquest, students will work in collaborative groups to plan and research a family vacation. They will extend their skills by making a travel guide and using Microsoft Word to format and publish their travel guide.

Introduction

It is Travel Week at school which culminates in a Travel Fair in the school auditorium at the end of the week. Think about where you have traveled with your family and where you have always wanted to go. Now is your chance to work with some classmates and create a travel guide to be presented at the end of the week. You are a Junior Travel Editor and must present your trip at the fair. How would you get there? What amusement parks or other attractions would you want to visit? Would you want to stay in a room with a view of the ocean or of the pool? Your group has the important job of planning the ultimate vacation. The only limit is your imagination. Happy traveling.
