Reviewer Comments:

This resource is a link to a series of online assignments that guide students through the process of learning about the US Constitution. While created as a unit for a specific course, the activities included could easily be integrated into a variety of courses that are studying the US Constitution. For example, there are guidelines for how to make a short movie clip about a current constitutional issue or creating a fictional facebook page about a founding father. It should be noted that a few of the links are empty or not available.

This is a very interesting use of google maps and I like it. By showing where these important events in our countries history take place on google maps will work much better than a history book. The lesson is a little vague on some of the directions. But overall an interesting twist to the locations of important events during the revolutionary war.
