Third Stop on the United States Region Tour: The Midwest
- Grades: 3–5
After the second stop of our United States region tour, we pretend to travel on crop dusters in this region. We make stops in St Louis, Missouri; a farm town in Iowa; Dodge City, Kansas; Mount Rushmore in South Dakota; the Soo Locks and Ford Motor Company in Michigan; O'Hare International Airport and Wrigley Field in Chicago; and the Mall of America in Minnesota.
During a visit to Dodge City, students learn about cattle drives. They pretend to work at a cowboy employment agency where they create "Help Wanted" signs advertising the many jobs that are necessary for a successful cattle drive.
During our stop at the Mall of America, students visit the mall's website to help them plan a shopping spree and check out the exciting attractions such as Nickelodeon Universe, Lego Land, Underwater Adventures, the Camp Snoopy amusement park, and many more.
