My car recently rolled past the 200,000 mile mark. Anyone knows me well knows that I love my car. It’s the only brand new car that I’ve ever purchased and I’ve had it for a very, very long time. To be honest, I’m actually surprised that I didn’t reach the 200,000 mile mark a lot sooner.
Here are a few photos from the day of the big event (via my iPhone).
Here’s a brief video clip of the odometer actually rolling from 199,999 miles to 200,000. Rest assured that I took the video and images while driving through a huge empty parking lot and not while driving down the interstate.
Let’s brainstorm ways that we can connect this event with the curriculum. What are some activities in which we can engage students with this event? Please share your your ideas in the comments section.
