The Crucial Hour: Mapping Activity
- Grade Level:
- Upper Elementary: Third Grade through Fifth Grade
- Social Studies
This activity is intended to be a simple exercise in analyzing and understanding how geography influenced decision making by both American and British armies in the Battles of Saratoga. It was originally planned for class use while visiting the battlefield, but it could also be used pre-visit in conjunction with the Saratoga National Historical Park virtual tour, or as a stand-alone activity.
