To go with the travel theme, our prize this week is Around the World in 80 Puzzles (Big Picture Press). Students take a fantastic journey via airships, boats, trains, wagons, hot air balloons, bikes, and parachutes as they work the brain-teasing visual puzzles on each page of this book. And you can win it!
To enter this week’s random drawing, let us know which mode of transportation mentioned above sounds like the most fun to you. Wagon? Hot air balloon? Parachute? How daring are you feeling? Submit your comment by Thursday, February 6. One lucky teacher will win! Then check out the great travel opportunities available and how to participate. Congratulations to our lucky winner Michele Potter!
