  1. 1. Maritcha Lesson Materials: Map of the New York City coastal area including lower Connecticut. Maritcha by Tonya Bolden Paper and pencil Map Skills: Use of mile scale on a map. Identifying and using highways and roads on a map. Focus: Using a map of the area, can you plot Maritcha’s family escape route to Salem Massachusetts? After reading pages 28- 32 of Maritcha, the students will record the starting point of the Lyon’s family escape route from New York City to Williamsburg, to the home of the Remonds (Salem, Mass.) They have to record all of the cities the family stopped in along the way showing the possible route between cities buy using the details from the book. Next, using the modern highway system plot a course from New York City to Salem, Massachusetts (Do not travel the same route as the Lyons family). What highways did you travel? Questions: What are the differences between the Lyons’ route and yours? What do you think are the reason’s for the differences? Chart the answers. Using the mile scale, what was the total distance travel by the Lyons family? Calculate all routes from city to city. Using the mile scale again, what is the distance you traveled from New York City to Salem, Mass.? Which route was fastest? Why? If you traveled your route today at 60 miles an hour, how long would it take for you to travel from New York City to Salem?
