16 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, February 3 - February 9, 1995 Briefly I)ennll Fomey photo Shields students develop map for Lewes Ferry Terminal Third grade students at Shields Elementary School in Lewes recently drew a local map of the Delaware resort area highlighting places of interest, street names, and local shopping dis. tricts. The map is mounted on a wall inside the Lewes ferry terminal. Also displayed with the map are a number of travel brochures prepared by the children to entice travelers to visit scenic and historic sites in the Delaware resort area. Approximately 75 students were in- volved in this joint project under the direction of Shields Principal Ed Schaefer and art teacher Bonnie Miller. The project was designed to combine geography and art instruction as well as permmsive writing in the brochures. Employees of the Delaware River and Bay Au- thority thought this might be a great opportunity to take advantage of the large number of visitors traveling through the Lewes Ferry terminal. Staff also felt a program like this fits perfectly with future growth plans of the Cape May-Lewes Ferry especially as it moves to- ward final plans for the new visitors' center. Shown here standing with the map are (back row l-r) Bonnie Miller, art teacher;, Shay EH, third grade teacher;, Buddy Bolen, Jessica Tyler, Jessica Fitzgerald, Megan McKone, Adam Schaefer, and Jackie Shockley, third grade teacher.
