Yeoman's Dilemma - Packing for Long Sea Voyage during the Great Age of Sail
Utilizing the Diary and Teaching Assistance of Yeoman Moses Stafford of the USS Constellation, ECRCME has created a simulation about packing for a long voyage during the Great Age of Sail. Two Motivator Maps for Educators supply detailed outlines about ways an educator can approach potential applications of math concepts grades K-8. Our Animated Assistance Moses Safford offers great details in the 34 slide power point ending with a quiz to check for understanding. Fair warning is to be sure to listen to slide number 6 before showing it to youth. It is easily cut out of the slide show or you can present the sounds of slaves chained below decks. With quick teacher led adaptability, this is great way for an educator to use the resource to teach your program, your way. This can be a staple resource for teaching the slave trade with the more fun integration of mathematics at K-8 levels.
