Have you checked out http://welikia.org/explore/mannahatta-map/ ? The Welikia Project is proof positive that technology can be Nature's best PR person.
Make sure you have flash player, click the link and see what "New York was like before it was a city." Your students' jaws will drop when they see the city's lush, green native landscape. This high tech site makes traveling back in time (to the year 1609) easy! Kids can research the flora and fauna on any city block. Welikia has great lesson plans too. I wish we had it when we were studying the Lenape!
