Background

Many schools will never be able to visit Saratoga National Historical Park, but teachers can still conduct a virtual tour of the battlefield on the park’s website, either during a computer lab, through a classroom computer connected to a projector, or on a Smart Board. This worksheet accompanies the virtual tour. 

Access the virtual tour here:

https://www.nps.gov/sara/learn/photosmultimedia/virtualtour.htm

In advance, read through the activity and take the virtual tour.  It may be helpful to save the link to have available for class use.

Distribute worksheets with vocabulary lists to students, letting them know they're about to take a virtual tour of Saratoga Battlefield. Review vocabulary list with them, indicating they will encounter these words along the tour. Also read through the worksheet with the students so they will be at least familiar with the questions before doing the tour.

Then, either in the classroom or in computer lab, have the students take the virtual tour.
