As we learned about Maine's regions and created torn paper landscapes and also advertisements persuading tourists to visit certain regions, we looked at why Maine is considered vacationland. We also had an opportunity to discuss why tourism is such an important industry for Maine. To conclude this work, we had a socratic seminar today to really share and discuss these things. I was so proud of the conversations they were able to have about these topics!
