Great American Road Trip Project

Tandem 5th graders have embarked on a virtual road trip through the United States. Starting from four different locations around the country, their final destination is fabulous Lincoln, Nebraska, home of the Huskers, birthplace of Kool Aid. As they travel through the country they will learn about famous landmarks along the way, practice managing a travel budget, and hone their collaboration skills. Of course, before embarking, they will need a car to drive. Special thanks to Tandem alumna, Sheri Edgecomb (TFS '86), for inviting the entire class down to Egdecombs Imported Auto Sales and Services to have a look around the lot and 'choose' their desired vehicle for the trip. As soon as these kids get their driver's licenses, they'll be ready to go!
