U.S. History: What Happened Here?

Students apply the global positioning system to create maps of local historical sites. By collaborating with local historical groups, they research events and relate them to broader, national history. In addition to writing essays about the locations, students display their map in the school hallway and teach their parents how to use GPS units.
