California Missions Documentary


missionsThis is a non-sequential multimedia web documentary inspired by the annual project completed by all California sixth-graders studying California history.

Using cited research material, the project displays beautiful photographs and a brief history of each of California’s 21 missions. In order to fit the format, the coastline of California is turned 90 degrees on its side. Each of the missions is identified by a star button which loads the content and images into the center movie holders. El Camino Real, identified by the brown trail, is also a hidden button that loads information about California’s first highway when it is clicked.

Included throughout is information about the impact of the missions on the native peoples of California from San Diego, the birthplace of California, north to Solano.
