Mapping with John Smith

by Ms. Trenkle

To learn about John Smith, and the region he navigated, students investigated National Geographic maps of the Chesapeake Bay 400 years ago and today. Students compared and contrasted the two sides of the map, imagining what it might have been like 400 years ago to travel via water and encounter so many Native Americans. Students learned that a lot has changed in our area, including the name of waterways and the ways areas/regions were named.
