Designing A Route

Students work in pairs (or individually) to develop a plan for a highway or other type of pathway between two points in the local area between 10 and 40 miles apart, and including some hilly or mountainous terrain. The instructional activity relies on the student being able to use ArcView software, a commercially available program.

I discovered Lesson Planet by accident, and am so glad I did. There would be times when I feel the materials provided to me are inadequate, and this site gave me exactly what I was looking for. I really love it when I give a task, and my students completely take over! I observe how determined they are to get the job done, and they feel more confident when the work is a success!
