Topic: Massachusetts Projects
Can you recommend a couple of projects for my state report of Massachusetts? Thanks! Rylee
There is a really cool place in Massachusetts called Old Sturbridge Village. Its a town dedicated to preserving the 19th century community. It looks and runs exactly like it did a hundred years ago! Its a living museum!
So . . . . go here . . . and click on General Information. Then click on Tour the Village. You could create a map of the village highlighting your favorite parts and explaining how things were done back then. For more in-depth projects, click on Education, then Teachers, then Activities.
Also, as part of the special On The American Trail presentation the Freedom Trail goes right through Boston, Massachusetts. Click on #6 on this map for more information.
Here is a map of the trail. You could re-create the map and add images of the different important locations along the trail.
Lastly, Massachusetts has a state muffin, dessert, and cookie. You can never go wrong with making those!
