Routing Little Switzerland

This Routing Little Switzerland lesson plan also includes:

Imagine trying to create a scenic national parkway through a gorgeous, but environmentally sensitive and already populated, mountainous area. One of the court cases that came out of the construction of the Blue Ridge Parkway, was the battle over the routing plans of the parkway through the area known as Little Switzerland. After studying primary and secondary source materials, class groups use materials available in Google Earth to design an alternate route for the parkway and justify why their route is a better alternative. The richly detailed plan includes complete directions and all required links.
