Before issuing this resource, make sure you go over the following steps:
- Discuss with your student how long they are going to be away for and what their trip will involve, (flights, places, duration…).
- Read over the resource and choose which parts you think would be appropriate for your student and their abilities.
- Look over the checklist with your student or students parent and see how many of each sheet you need to print. Some pages need to be printed multiple time such as the flight log and the planner entry sheet. You might need to give them some spare copies if you think appropriate.
- The amount of countries visited will also determine how many pages in the passport that will be needed.
- Discuss the best way to lay out their work, what kind of journal will be appropriate to use. For the passport, this can be printed as a mini booklet, or can be cut out and pasted in a smaller sized book.
