California Mission Internet Trail - This site is being constructed by students up and down the state of California to serve as a central resource for information on the California Missions. The effort is being coordinated by Pioneer School and Oak Hill School in Escondido, California as part of the State Building the Future Project.

The Spanish Missions of California - This site was created to compete for a ThinkQuest Scholarship (we didn't win) and to show that the Internet is a viable learning tool in the classroom. We hope that our site will excite all those fourth and fifth graders out there in California who study the Missions as part of the California State Curriculum, and we hope that teachers will find it useful as well. Of course, this site is for anyone and everyone, not just California's fourth graders.

California Missions Interactive Home Page - two bicyclists traveled the Mission Trail on bicycle, visiting 12 Missions. This web page is the account of their journey. An interesting project.
