This issue is all about the Panama Canal. We explore the early history of France's failed attempts to build a sea level canal. Some of the topics of the articles include a description of the amazing Panamanian geography, the role of disease and the eradication of yellow fever in the successful completion of the canal, and the concept of locks and how the Panama Canal was built with six pairs of locks, and a comparison of the two great canals of the world - the Panama and Suez. There is an activity that provides a hands-on approach to understanding how locks work and a quote activity that helps readers discover what the canal's motto is.
