Do you enjoy traveling around your neighbourhood? Have you ever found something interesting or surprising around your place of residence while traveling? During the pandemic, Mary Hosbrough and Jennifer Jacobsen-Wood tried something new: They met daily to walk every street in their hometown, Peoria, Ill.
Reporter Mitch Smith wrote in “This Pair Walked Every Inch of Peoria” about why these two women walked their entire town and what they learned along the way.
Students, read the full article, then tell us:
How much have you explored your hometown? What’s the most interesting or surprising thing you’ve discovered while traveling?
Do you want to take on a similar challenge in your community and try to walk “every street, avenue, terrace, boulevard and cul-de-sac”? why or why not?
Did you walk more during the pandemic, when schools were closed?
Do you like to travel alone or with friends? Why?
