Grade 3 Amazing Race Goes to Asia

Students in third grade enrichment were challenged to find their next destination with the use of longitude and latitude lines.  After a lot of teamwork and perseverance they landed in Tokyo Japan!  The team format of the race is driving many great challenges and triumphs.  Students are starting to see the benefit of working together as they receive challenging clues that take all of their combined brain power and ideas!  After discovering their destination, students could choose to learn about katakana, a Japanese form of writing...and then decode a message OR learn about origami and then create three paper folding challenges.
