TeachersFirst Reading Treks create a virtual field trip of resources about a piece of literature or text using the My Maps feature of Google Maps. This Reading Trek provides inspiration and suggestions for using the trade book, Around America to Win the Vote: Two Suffragists, a Kitten, and 10,000 Miles. Use our robust Instructional Guide with students in grades K-4. Content correlates to Common Core Standards, ISTE Student Standards, National Core Arts Standards for Visual Arts, and National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies. Find the entire selection of Reading Treks here.

Consider using the book as a starting point to locate primary sources to teach about voting in the United States along with life during the early 1900s. Using the map and locales, trace and then calculate distances for some of Alice Burke and Neil Richardson's travels across the country. Use Google My Maps, reviewed here to create and share custom maps.
