Title: Around My State
Description:

In this learning activity, students will watch a video from GoNoodle about taking a road trip through the USA. In the video, a significant fact is given about each state visited. Students will then research areas in their state and create their own video about taking a road trip through their state (Alabama). Students should include at least six significant facts about their state starting with their hometown and include cardinal and intermediate directions to describe their route from city to city navigating through their state.

This alignment results from the ALEX Resource Development Summit.
