Question Ideas: Before the trip, have each child make up Q&A cards for themselves on index cards. The subject can be whatever subject they are trying to learn. Parents can make cards for little children. These cards are used in the paper games. Or while on the trip, hand out index cards and have the children write on their card, using their own names: ‘Joe’s favorite food’, ‘Joe’s favorite color’, ‘Sue’s best talent’, ‘Mom’s best dessert’, and so on. Everyone then has to write their answer on the back of each question card. Use these cards in the board games as a form of Get to Know You. Parents can even make up cards in the hotel at night about the places the family visited that day and what they learned.
