not enough homework on any given night, then work on the project.
The following are the various parts of this project.
1. Write to the state tourism office to request information, broucheres and a map of the state.
1a. Get an overview of your state by doing a State Webquest at http://www.davidson.k12.nc.us/webquests/usstates/states.htm
