So I am having a road trip/travel theme this year. In my reading area I have a bulletin board that says Oh, the places we can go! with a post with arrow signs going in different directions and I want to put towns or settings of popular novels on the signs. of course I am drawing a blank (too much on my mind) and the only ones that come to mind are - Hogwarts, Neverland, either Panem or District 13 ( don't necessarily like that these are only coming to my mind because they were made into movies, uuuuuggghh). If you can think of some that 4th graders would recognize that would be so helpful?

I was thinking of how our read alouds take us to new places:

NYC (Tales of a Fourth ...)
Narnia (Chronicles of Narnia)
Rome (Wilma Unlimited in the Olympics)
just to name a few...
