Do you teach New York State history or geography? Do you teach about the explorer, Henry Hudson? If you do, this slide show of pictures (mostly from my own travels) will help your students visualize what the river looks like and how dramatically it changes from the mouth to the source of the river. I use this slide show as an introduction to NYS geography, as well as again when we learn about Henry Hudson. I want my students, most of whom have never seen it, to be able to visualize what the river looks like. This is the perfect vehicle for that! (It's even better projected on a Smart Board!)
This is my 13th year teaching. I've taught 2nd grade for 6 years, and the rest of my time in 4th grade. I also own my own educational consulting business. My staff and I teach staff development workshops in school districts across Western New York.
