SOCIAL STUDIES/WRITING
World-Wide Traveling

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: Nibley, Utah
Date Submitted: April 16, 2001

Get your students excited about a new writing project with this "chance" activity. Pull down a large wall map and call each student, one at a time, to the map. Blindfold the person and spin him around 3 times. While spinning you may want the class to chant, "Around the world, where will you go? Spin 3 times, and soon you'll know!" Have him walk to the map and point out his finger to a place on it. Take off the blindfold and he'll see where he is going! This is the place he can study about and write his make-believe, grand adventure of going there. Students can write these stories on luggage-shaped paper, or even as part of a "big book." See directions for writing a big book under Writing: Student-Created Big Books with Carpet Holders, grades K-6.
