The purpose of this guide is to provide 4th grade students with a variety of quality resources in order that they may conduct a social studies research project about Wisconsin.
What people, places, and events would you include on a cultural tour of a Wisconsin region that is not your own?
Research this region (using a variety of sources) and design a tour with your classmates that will give your families and friends an understanding of how this region fits into the history and culture of the State of Wisconsin and how it compares to your town or region. Create a tour map listing sites of interest accompained by a brief explanation of each site, and invite your friends and neighbors to learn!

Use this section of Mapquest to create your tour route through your region. You will need to know the addresses of your sites and arrange them in the order that you want to introduce your sites. Also, be prepared to include a title for each site.
