This is an activity that is fun to do at home with your family. To get ready, have an adult help you find a map of the area you will be traveling. This may be a local city map, a state map, or even a country map if you are going on a long drive. Ask your family if it is ok for you to draw on this map. You’ll want to put a star near every interesting point.
