Product Description

This mini unit covers the Ohio Model social studies standard involving the evolution of transportation in the state. Students will explore the development of steamboats, canals, and railroads stemming from the early travels of Native Americans and pioneers. Activities include making a timeline, close reading a summary and completing a graphic organizer, creating a transportation cartoon using cause & effect statements, and studying 7 color information posters to develop an understanding of the connection among transportation developments.
