A video guide to part six of the History Channel's documentary America: The Story of Us. It was originally designed for middle school students but could work for older students as well.The guide has eleven questions total - about one question every four to five minutes, although a few are closer together.
I try to pick important information for the questions and space them out so students must pay attention but do not have to write so much that they can't enjoy the video.
The America: The Story of Us DVD set is available on Amazon or individual episodes can be purchased on iTunes.
Episode description from the History Channel:
The Transcontinental Railroad unites the nation and transforms the Heartland. Native American civilizations decline as farmers settle the continent. Cattle replace wild buffalo as king of the Plains; the Cowboy becomes a new American icon.
