  • Each group selected a site that we thought was the most interesting to us.
  • We liked picking our own groups to work with this time.
  • We really enjoyed the virtual tours. They made us feel like we were really there.
  • We could have added more details/facts on some of the slides.
  • More Reflections
  • Some of us spent too much time playing with the virtual tour instead of working.
  • Some of us learned that working with friends is not too good. We did not get as good of a grade because we played around too much.
  • We thought it was difficult to talk about our work in front of our parents. We need more practice talking in public.
  • We liked the virtual tour of George Washington the best because we want to go there. We wondered… “How many Patriots or colonists lived in homes like Mount Vernon?”
