Have Passport, Will Travel

Ever since dusting off the passports to go to Mexico, the kids have been looking at the map, trying to determine where we should go next.   Taking advantage of this interest in geography, I put together some work with the help of Mrs. Waffenschimdt. The kids love playing the computer game “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego” and this is a take on that.  The kids get printed clues and they have to figure out a famous person, place, or landmark, and the country it is in.
