Immerse your students in 1775 as a soldier garrisoning Fort Ticonderoga comes to your classroom. Students learn about the experiences of a soldier on the Lake Champlain frontier during the American Revolution. Students learn about the daily life of soldiers through hands-on experiences with high-quality reproductions of items that soldiers carried during the Revolution. Students gain an understanding of the purpose and function of each item and the larger concepts related to service in America’s War for Independence. Students learn about equipping and feeding an army in a remote location while incorporating geography, math, and language arts skills.
