Lewis and Clark Google Adventures.

Posted by

One web assignments I did for the week was called Google History Maps Story, worth 3 stars. The history story I chose to replicate was of Lewis and Clark’s adventure. ¬†To begin I googled all the points where they stopped on their journey and put them in google maps directions, adding a new destination to the travel directions so all the places could be listed. I then pressed get directions and took a screen shot of the map created. ¬†I then uploaded the picture onto flicker and tagged it with¬†¬†On/In the WebAssignments105 and¬†WebAssignments.
