The Uncle Reuben Project is an interdisciplinary, authentic learning project going on in my classroom. It brings genealogy into my classroom and engages my students with real world learning experiences! Resources and primary source documents can be found at the links to the right.

Uncle Reuben's Canoe

Recently, I discovered that one of my uncles actually has the canoe that Uncle Reuben used to travel down the Mississippi River in the early 1930's. Now I have more research to do! Here are some pictures I took of it.
The rudder, shown above, was built by Reuben and added to
the canoe along with a sail.

The canvas on the bottom of the canoe is very worn.
