This lesson is designed for campers who are at least a middle school reading level and who can find and follow a specific Web site. The Web site used in this activity includes information that is appropriate for this audience, but much of it is appropriate for more advanced readers.


After completion of this lesson, campers will be able to describe special features of a city. The worksheet and activities should encourage them to do some creative writing while they think about traveling across the United States.

  • Provide an overview of today's lesson.
  • Distribute activity sheet and facilitate today's activity.
  • Summarize today's lesson. Encourage discussion about their explorations.
