There is another new Writing Opportunity for SchoolhouseTeachers.com! One of our units is called Everyday Explorers: USA. Each month, we explore a different state in a sort of virtual field-trip, learning about the history of the state. A contributor can do one state or multiple. Compensation is in the form of links to your material on our website.
For each state, we need the following items:
- Eight locations within the state that have informative (and family-appropriate) websites. These “field trips” must be able to be enjoyed from home, without access to the location itself.
- One to two activities for each location (any grade). These can include writing assignments, worksheets, research assignments, games, puzzles, etc… This is just an overview of the activities, there are countless other options. I’d love to talk to you about the details if you are interested or have questions.
- Locations can include zoos, museums, historic houses, even an amusement park (if there is adequate history of the park shared on the website). While historic sites (forts, etc…) are more than welcome, Everyday Explorers isn’t limited to strictly historic sites.
We have done more than a dozen states and have a few others underway. Here are the states we are currently seeking information on:
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey
- New Mexico
- North Carolina
- Rhode Island
- South Dakota
