Goods, Services, People and Ideas Transported Through Colorado: A Mission Impossible?

Groups of learners work together to determine the best mode of transportation between two cities in Colorado. The journey is supposed to have taken place a century ago, so the groups must study old maps, and old methods of transporting goods between the cities during that time. A written proposal must be submitted from each group to the teacher.

As the International Teacher for Miina Härma Gumnaasium in Tartu, Estonia, I teach classes in English that include children from Estonia, Romania, Latvia, Lithuania, and even Pakistan besides Britain and the United States. Lesson Planet helps me find many worksheets and lessons that feature hands-on activities, good graphic organizers, clear, simple language and diagrams, step-by-step math explanations. It is basically very useful for helping a teacher with a largely ESL population. Moreover, I must develop my own teaching materials since I follow the Estonian national curriculum PLUS the national standards of the students, which can be difficult to reconcile together -- never mind, trying to find a textbook that suits (and, I might add, English-language texts are not easily obtainable here).
