PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this activity, students learn about the importance of the Erie Canal and details about how it was built. First students read a brief passage that provides some background information about the canal (there is a map accompanying the passage as well) Then they will watch a brief video (from America: Story of Us series) and answer questions related to it. Finally, students will listen to the Erie Canal song (link to Bruce Springsteen version included on the handout) and answer questions related to the song as well. I love ending class with a sing-along! A teacher key is also included in this download. Enjoy!
