Over 8,000 websites created by students around the world who have participated in a ThinkQuest Competition.
Boats, Donkeys and Mules, Oh My!
The web site is designed to increase the awareness of
students to the importance of the man made waterway,
The Erie Canal. This site offered the students the opportunity
to research the evolution of a historically significant
creation by man. It also gave them the chance to discuss
the future of this waterway as it relates to New York States
goals. We began the project with visits to historical sites
of the Erie Canal along with the present day Barge Canal.
This set into motion the students desire to discover what
happened to the canal and why it changed its focus over the years.
