This software program is an oldy but a goody. Using just one computer per classroom, students are given a state of origin, two resources, and an ending destination requirement. Using this information, student groups plot a ten-state course through adjacent states, all the while trying to travel through as many states which possess the sought-after resources. The process repeats over seven rounds. Throughout the activity, students must be good collaborators, communicators, and problem solvers as they must use multiple maps to make their decisions.
