Travel the United States from the Comfort of Your Classroom!

Good teachers strive to make their teaching come alive! Providing students with authentic learning experiences is something I work hard to do in my classroom on a daily basis. Social studies is a particular subject area that lends itself to great opportunities for this type of real-world learning. 

My United States Region Tour is a perfect way for me to take my students to places they may never visit in real life and to provide them with unforgettable learning experiences through online field trips, by playing "pretend" in our classroom, and even by allowing them to taste the delicious cuisine of the different states we visit.
