Series: How To Kit
Authors: Lynn Malcolm
Collection: Learning Materials
This kit has been designed for learners and travellers of all ages and contains activities that promote learning before, during, and after a trip.
The authors suggest that adults and children explore websites to get information about their destination; prepare a trip countdown calendar; and talk about other trips the family has taken.
As well, they offer ideas for games to improve literacy skills. For instance, if the family is going to Edmonton, they can imagine packing a suitcase with things that also begin with the letter E.
The authors provide tips for teaching children how to pack; keeping a travel journal; and preventing or dealing with motion sickness.
