Product Description
This is a simple assignment that can be done within 1 class period or assigned as homework. It's a short reading of a primary source account of America's first steam locomotive. There is a short introduction for context, followed by the personal account, followed by 10 questions of varied difficulty.

Some questions can easily be found in the reading, others require demonstrating a stronger grasp of the material or summarization skills.
