Using a budget (Rs. 50,000 to Rs. 200,000), learners create their family dream vacation plan. They need to accommodate all their family members in the vacation plan. They can also take relatives, as long as they stay on budget. The vacation destination can be within India or abroad. They can visit more than one place during their vacation. This project will require them to do internet research on destinations, allocate resources, calculate the cost of the trip, convert currencies and learn the geography and climate of the new area.
The end product will be a detailed travel-planner cum brochure about their trip with all the information and details necessary for carrying out a successful trip. Other learners and parents will be looking at these to choose their favourite dream vacation during the final event.
