To evaluate if your students understand the theme of "Movement" from the Five Themes of Geography, this task taps into your students' creative side.
A product is created, and the students draw illustrations of either transportation or communication in the US from before 1800 to today and the future. The future, of course, is speculative, but again taps into students' creativity.
A rubric is included as well.
This file is in Microsoft Word 2010 so that teachers can modify it in any way they wish to accommodate their needs in the classroom. Feel free to change the wording, change the rubric, the fill color, etc.!
