Sixth graders travel through Latin America

Sixth graders in history teacher Andy McGarvey’s class created their own travel agency to promote specially curated vacations in Latin American countries. McGarvey gave students a budget of $7,500 for two adults to spend during the course of their trip, which could be from five to 14 days. Within their groups, students debated what they should include from their chosen countries from the multitude of restaurants in Colombia to the wide array of sightseeing options in Peru. Along with preparing a brochure detailing their trip’s itinerary, students will also present an advertisement for their travel agency.
