Project Update 4

My theme of my project is the Ohio and Erie Canal. I want to focus on how the canals helped build cities in Ohio and how they influenced people’s lives in the 1800s. I want children to learn the history of the canals and to see through photography how life was like living on a canal. I think a footage video clip of how a canal is pulled would be a good interpretive strategy. A replica of a canal boat that the children could disassemble and reassemble would be a nice interactive as well as a seek-and-find book of the photographs. I think a story-time area would be a good tool as well.
