Creating Amazing Race Challenges

Third graders in enrichment classes are wrapping up their amazing race around the world.  So far we have visited three continents and taken challenges ranging from cultural dances to surfing and reciting facts about the Great Barrier Reef, to making and testing boomerangs, as well as many map challenges!  Next students will spend time creating their own challenges for a continent.  Students are responsible for working with their amazing race team to develop:   a challenge to figure out their continent, a cultural challenge, and a geography mapping challenge. After the challenges are created, students will exchange them with another team.  This will allow them to learn about two more continents as we finish our world travels!
