Product Description
The United States was growing in land and population. People traveled for months just to get to California. Wars broke out over boundaries, and gold was found in California. So much was going on at the turn of the 19th century. However, not only was the United States trying to catch up to Great Britain's progress in the industry of steel and textiles. Laws were made to keep English designs out of American hands, but still, men went forward as inventors. The steam engine, the transcontinental railroad, and the cotton gin seemed like steps into the future. In some ways, these and other inventions propelled America toward prosperity. In other ways, it set America back socially. The Constitution of the United States stated that "All men are created equal..." and yet, slavery was the main form of labor in the south. Not only that, women and children worked in factories in the north for little pay and dangerous work conditions. This time was full of good and bad. Our job is to learn all we can to improve our future.

This unit is the ninth unit in the History of America series. This bundle is packed full of reading passages with my signature text-evidence based questions, interactive notebook pieces, QR codes, crafting projects, and writing pieces!

"We need to learn from history, or we are doomed to repeat it."

This set is vital for any teacher trying to use their valuable time more efficiently.

My motto is "Work smarter, not harder."

All you have to do is pick your standard, print the pages you need for it, and add it to your own lesson plan! This set will save you HOURS of work (I know because this set took me over 140hours to create;). It is also more relevant than most textbooks for social studies. How do I know? I used to teach these standards from a textbook ... hence my creating these units. What makes this set even better is that you can use it in your reading block and apply reading standards!
