Unlock the Fun
Here are some ideas to add even more fun into your virtual journey across Nebraska:
- Involve different teachers and lessons along your route. Get a math teacher involved to show how to calculate minutes to miles without using the dashboard’s calculator. Invite your art teacher to create some Nebraska-themed art. Be sure to get your physical education teacher involved to think of creative ways to exercise your way across the state.
- Encourage students to share their stories of visiting the physical sites highlighted along the virtual route, if they mention their experiences.
- Use the extra partner resources to further enhance the journey. You’ll find book recommendations, recipes and more!
- Offer prizes to your teams as they complete the journey, like Most Creative Exercise, Most Individual Miles and of course, First Place, Second Place and so on.
- Tell us your ideas! What extra things have you done to make this a unique experience for your students?
