Added to the extension activity to allow more critical thinking for the students in the Pony Express activity.
I really like this lesson plan. One new idea to consider is to allow the students to do some critical thinking and have them come up with a way to model the Pony Express for your activity. You could use guiding questions such as: How could we make a model of the Pony Express in our class/school? What does each student represent in the simulation? This would also be a way to informally assess your student's understanding.
