Geography/History Travel Guide


In preparation for our vacation I requested and received the 2010 Washington State Travel From Experience Washington.

WA4 Inside we found a very simple but nice map that we could use to trace our route. Our route to get to Spokane is outlined in black, and our route home is outlined in blue.

Selena had a lot of fun following the Freeways and Highways as we made our way on the map. We will take this magazine with us along with a laminated map of Washington so that Selena can try to track where we are along our way.


This magazine is packed with all types of information. I was very pleased to find that they had the State broke up in regions according to eight regions:

WA3 You will have to check back next week to see just how I use this page with our map. Inside the magazine are pictures throughout these 8 regions. Do you think you know what I have planned? Well, check back next week to see if you are right.

When we finish this Geography lesson and Trek all the information we learn will be added to Selena’s Geography Scrapbook as an extension to her Washington State pages.

Remember if you entered into my giveaway and link up your Geography/History post to go let me know here, for an extra entry. It’s still not too late to enter the giveaway!

  1. What an excellent idea!
    Each state has a tourist board one could write to.
    Sorry about my confusion yesterday.
    I kept thinking yesterday was Wednesday!

  2. Very nice. I like to pick up, or print out a listing of historical highway signs for the states we travel in, too.

  3. I meant to trace the roads, but it didn't happen. Very cool.

  4. Okay, went in and added in 3 of my geography posts from my vacation. That's a start. Now I need to figure out what I want to pick from the Le Van toy line to enter the giveaway.

  5. I think it's neat that you introduced "real travel maps" so early. I am sure Selena is super excited about your trip. I should get this kind of book for CA eventually.

  6. Thanks for sharing, did you see they also have a Student Guide?
