How does maritime activity impact your community and daily life? In this photo sharing activity, students investigate this central question by locating, exploring, and photographing evidence of maritime activities affecting them and/or their community. They will then write a detailed description about the effect of these activities and share both photographs and descriptions online. This activity is one of the learning resources connected with the online exhibition entitled On the Water: Stories from Maritime America.
