Activities for Lesson 8
Compute the time it
would take for the colonists to travel.  The best speed
was by a horse drawn coach or sailing ship at 10 m.p.h.
Use a map to determine some distances. For example the
distance from Boston to Lexington. Figure out the time
it would take to travel the distance by taking the
distance divided by 10 (the speed traveled) to equal the
time.
