Ah! Those Horse and Buggy Days!

Students discuss contemporary methods of travel and the time it takes to travel to places. They use the Internet to explore 18th century travel. Students work in small group to research the amount of time it would have taken representatives of the Continental Congress in Philadelphia to travel from their home colonies and compare to the amount of time it would take by automobile.

I've enjoyed being able to see other teachers' great ideas and implement them in the classroom. Also, the ability to use another teacher's PowerPoint and edit as needed is a huge boon as it saves time (especially since I am teaching a new topic this year).
