Student work on Shelburne landscape history
During the 2003-2004 academic year, 8th grade students from the Shelburne Community School studied four sites in Shelburne in order to investigate their natural and cultural history. Each group of students developed a series of web pages that present their work and results, giving the public a detailed look at the history of these sites. These students worked hard, and learned a lot about new ways to look at the scientific and human history of landscapes they see every day!
