The school year is starting to wind down and many of us are thinking about getting away. How nice would a beach vacation be right now? Well, you can take a virtual trip around the world with Scholastic at Global Trek . Start by selecting one of the 35 locations then create a travel journal and you're off! Once you reach your destination, you will learn about the country's history, culture and people. Details about daily life, holidays, food, sports, school, famous people, geography, and government is provided by actual students as they answer questions from Scholastic users. When you complete your journey, test your knowledge with Mapman and his trivia games. Don't wait until summer to take a vacation.
