Extension and Activities
Divide students into groups. Have each group pick one city from each of the categories and take the virtual trips. Compare the differences of the locations. Apply what they learned to where they live. Are they rural, suburban, or urban? Create a presentation of their town or city answering the same questions as the cities/town they learned about. Present what they created to the class or parent group.
