In honor of the National Park Service's restoration and reopening of the Washington Monument, the National Register of Historic Places, Teaching with Historic Places (TwHP) program launched a new Web feature highlighting the TwHP lesson plan, "The Washington Monument: Tribute in Stone", which examines George Washington and the famous monument erected in his honor. The online lesson plan comes with a map, visual images and activities for both educators and students. It also explains the long history of constructing the monument, which was interrupted in March 1854, by members of the anti-immigrant American Party--better known as the "Know-Nothings". How the Washington Monument was saved, and how it differs today from the original design, makes for fascinating reading. Find out more at www.cr.nps.gov/nr/twhp
