Culture, math and geography-our faux trip to London

I gave K an extended project to do right after Christmas break; she was a plan a trip to London. 

She had a budget, a (somewhat outdated) DK Eyewitness Travel Guide-London and free reign.  I won’t go into the budget since the travel book was outdated and it isn’t likely to be accurate anyway.  Suffice it to say she paid for expenses with plenty left for buying souveniers!  It was quite a project; K tried to group her sight seeing so she saw a different part of the city each day (geography), budgeted her money so she could see more (math) and picked and chose which parts of the city she wanted to see most (culture).  As you can see Sherlock was right at the top of her list LOL! Other must sees were the Tower of London and Westminster Abbey.  The London Eye was there for my benefit, she will not go on it herself 😉

Here is what she came up with:
