A Virtual Tour of Ol' Boston
T. Ratliff's Field Trip Activity
This app has many choices.
There are tours already created and an option to create your own walking tour.
Students will be focusing on creating their own, but have great examples to evaluate.
Info on the mobile app can be found at: http://www.nps.gov/bost/planyourvisit/app.htm
When creating a walking tour, students choose sites to add to their tour.
Each site has an image of the past or referring to the past.
Each site also shows what you would see in Boston today.
There is also an audio file of the source document that a student can hear.
The Accompanying Map
As a student develops a tour, an accompanying map is created!
