Instructional Ideas

  • Assign to learners on individual devices or on a day in the computer lab
  • Incorporate into a research assignment on the Civil War
  • Spark a discussion about the value of interactive tours in the research project as either primary or secondary resources
Classroom Considerations

Pros

Cons

  • None
