Much of the research work needed to accomplish your Tour will be done at school, however, you may need to do some research on your own.

WORLD TOUR PROJECT DUE DATE IS MAY 17, 2005!!!!

Okay reporters, as your publisher I'm going to give you your jobs now. I will provide you with all necessary forms. As I said earlier there are two parts to your job, and I'll tell you about the individual requirements on this page. After you look over this page go to the process page by clicking on the PROCESS link at the bottom of this page. Later you will need to click on the Group Requirements link at the bottom of this page, but don't worry about it now. Take care of your individual requirements first!


INDIVIDUAL WORLD TOUR WEBQUEST REQUIREMENTS

Your responsibility as an individual reporter is to travel to all seven continents of the world and visit one country on each continent. You then need to visit a city in that country. You should visit one of the three largest cities in the country. The city you visit may be the capital of the country even if it is not one of the three largest cities in the country.

FIRST: Passport Application: You must successfully complete the continent recognition game (click on the map at the bottom of page to play the game) and label all seven continents on your continent map to obtain your Passport. Once you have completed this step turn your map into your publisher to obtain your Passport. (5 points)

SECOND: Mapping Requirement: The starting and ending point for your world tour is Detroit, Michigan. You must record your travels on your continent map connecting each spot with a line in the order that you go to each (Remember to track your mileage). On your map you should label each place you visit and indicate the approximate latitude and longitude of each spot. (10 points)

THIRD: Tourist Journal Requirement: As you travel you must keep a Tourist Journal for each destination. Your will create your own journal, and it must have a decorated cover page with your name and class on it. You may use hand drawn or computer generated pictures on your cover page. Each Tourist Journal entry should be a minimum of two paragraphs long and should describe at least two to three specific things you saw and did at each of the seven locations you visited. You must mention specific things about each destination such as names of and information about attractions (historical sites, natural parks, monuments, tourist attractions, native animals, intesting foods, etc.), what was there, and/or specific things you did. Most of your Tourist Journal should be about the city you visited, but you may include other interesting things from other parts of the country if you wish. Your Tourist Journal should be written as if you had actually visited the site explaining what you did and how you felt during your visit. You may use any paper you like for your journal and may use both sides of the paper. Up to five bonus points will be awarded for hand drawn illustrations in your journal entries. (Seven journal entries @ 5 points each=35 points)

FOURTH: Passport Requirements: There are two requirements here. You must have your Passport stamped when you enter a country (I'll do this when I see your completed Passport Journal) and when you exit the country (I'll do this when I see your completed Tourist Journal). I will give you the forms for the Passport Journal. (See above). (8 pages @ 5 points each=40 points)

FIFTH: Mileage Voucher: You must turn in your mileage voucher at the end of your individual travels. (10 points)

Possible points for individual requirements: 100
