I loved the introduction to this project, which just goes to prove you can study the world through just about anything.
The students are studying world war one, particularly on a local level. The students are producing a cycling map, which sets up trails that then inform visitors of local history. The combination of content knowledge, engaging activities and a purposeful product are all key motivational strategies for this project.
This slide show highlights the big picture of the project, has teaching prompts and questions to teach the content, highlights and makes relevant enticing trips out on bikes, and includes the practicalities to make the project run smoothly.
What a great way to learn history and about your local area.
