American Mile Markers


Cross the entire United States, mile by tedious mile, from the comfort of your home and personal computer. Follow Matt as he drives and takes a picture at each mile from the Statue of Liberty to the Golden Gate Bridge. Students may Email a picture postcard using any of Matt's photos or use them as writing motivators. The onscreen "grease-pen-on-a-map" trail of his journey will spark many geography-related and even math-related (scale, distance) activities.
