Go on a Virtual Literary Trip
When readers download a Lit Trip from the lesson database, they can follow the plot and characters of a given book through those areas of the globe that serve as the book’s setting. For example, younger students who are reading Robert McCloskey’s Make Way for Ducklings can take a virtual trip through Boston; students in grades 6–8 who are reading Laurie Halse Anderson’s Fever 1793 can virtually explore Philadelphia; and students in grades 9–12 who are reading Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner can virtually travel the difficult terrain of Afghanistan. During their journey, students view photographs, read excerpts from the book, answer questions, make connections between the book and the real world and explore links to supplemental information about particular locations and landmarks.
