(Note: you have the choice of several different forms of media or technology to use to exhibit your final project. I recommend Prezi, powerpoint, or some other presentation software. This must be shown digitally, no paper copies. This is so that we are also practicing our technology skills)
Choose your location.
You may use Google Earth (https://www.google.com/earth/) to look at potential locations, or you might pick a place you have heard of but would like to know more about. Be sure to pick somewhere with enough landmarks and activities to create a week-long trip around. Must be somewhere out of the USA.
Start researching your country and the activities it has to offer and what daily life is like in that country. It might be helpful here to create a T-chart comparing your country to the US. While not always recommended, Wikipedia might be able to offer some information about your country as an overview.
Plan itinerary. Create a plan for what you will do every day for your 7-day trip. This does not need to be detailed out to the minute but should list at least 2 activities and one landmark per day. This will not contain much detail but will be a rough outline of what you will do each day. Don't worry too much about finding exact restaurants or stores, because it will be difficult with the language barrier. Focus on well-known landmarks. Also, try to include a variety of places, do not just do museums.
Ex. Day One in Paris:
-go to the Louve
-take a walking tour
-eat at a French Cafe
Create your daily travel log for each day. Here you will be writing a "diary" entry talking about your day. You will mention what you did at each location from your itinerary and will need to include at least 3 comparisons to life back home. (ex. On our walking tour I noticed the cars are different makes than cars in the US or The cafe here sold croissants and bread but my favorite cafe at home sells...). You must also include one image for each day. You may draw these or use an example from Google Images.
