Students will create a chronological narrative as they embark on a fictitious journey around the globe. Students will become crew members on a whaling ship leaving Martha’s Vineyard in the 1800s. As part of their adventure, students will be assigned a geographical location that their ship visited. In pairs, students will create a journal entry that includes two or more important facts about the region studied. These journal entries will be compiled into one larger class journal, documenting the global travels of the fictitious ship.
