To attend our monthly Passport Days you must meet the following criteria:
-90% or better on the in class weekly map tests for the month
-Passport stamp earned for each spotlight country that month (usually 3- 4)
-Complete at least one Special Itinerary project each month
When and Where Does Passport Club Meet?
The Passport Club will have at least one Passport Day a month. We will meet during 6th grade SSR lunch and sometimes even during SSR in Mrs. Cole’s room (208). Occasionally we may have the opportunity to meet additional times through the month to further explore geography!
How Much Does Passport Club Cost?
Nothing but your time J However, if you would like to purchase a t-shirt or drawstring backpack with the Passport Club logo they you will have the opportunity to do so later this fall.
How Do I Earn the Weekly Passport Stamps?
Simply complete at least one activity for the spotlight country of the week. These activities will be available in the classroom and online.
After completing the activity, fill out the passport page with what you learned and bring both your passport and the activity to me by Friday to receive your stamp.
What Are Special Itinerary Projects?
Special Itinerary Projects allow you to explore the world and your interests while reinforcing geography skills. Special Itinerary Projects should focus on one (or more) of the countries studied that month. For instance, if we are studying Europe that month, you shouldn’t pick a project about China. You can choose from the suggestion list provided or you can follow your own interests and with the guidance of your parents create a project of your own. Please make sure all projects are approved by me before starting!
A good rule of thumb is that each Special Itinerary Project should equal at least 2 hours of work. If you are interested in a longer term project please see me to extend a Special Itinerary project over multiple months.
