Are We There Yet?

This week we read Dan Santat’s newest book  Are We There Yet?  We also reviewed several  of his other books that we had already read – Adventures of Beekle (Caldecott Medal Winner) and Carnivores (Buckeye Award Nominee).


We then did a mapping activity. We started with a map of our state with some major cities, added the interstate highways which connect these cities and used an atlas to locate  and label them .  We then added several attractions so that we could plan our own road trip.
