Spain- El Camino

*Update: For photos of my Camino adventures, visit THIS PAGE. For the Summer Packet Camino page, see HERE.

SPAIN: The Camino de Santiago is a 500-mile hike across northern Spain. It takes about 30 days to complete on foot. You carry everything you need in a backpack, and follow the arrows and shells so you don’t get lost. Second graders made a very cool green screen video (see below) showing us their journey, while fifth graders opted to make a topographical representation of the walk.

For this challenge, put arrows and shells all over the house, leading to your learning space or bedroom, like it is the Camino de Santiago. Feel free to pack a bag and go on a mini-hike with your parents walking around the block, if you feel like it. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes!
