California Missions - An Excel Project
Step 1 - Create a spreadsheet file with a first-row title of California Missions Listed from North to South that has three columns labeled on the next row:
Mission | Year Founded | County Location
Step 2 - Using the California Missions Map (found above in the more... section), list the missions by name in the exact order shown on the map from northernmost to southernmost in column 1. If you're not sure of the mission's name, see Step 3. If the missions are too close together on the map, be sure to zoom in a little to make it clearer. Also, please don't use the word "Mission" in the name.
Step 3 - Find the link to the California Missions Timeline on the Cool Links page above, and enter the correct founding year for each mission in column 2. Note: the full and proper names of the missions are shown on this timeline. Make sure they are used for Step 2.
Step 4 - Upload your completed spreadsheet using the box on the left
Step 5 - Download the image file below and using Paint.net, open the file and white out all the county names that do NOT have missions in them. Leave the names showing of counties that DO have missions. When you have finished, save your fixed map and upload the saved image using the box on the upper left.
