Product Description

This is a four part unit by Reading Through History which covers the Tom Thumb, early railroads, the Transcontinental Railroad, and the Golden Spike ceremony in Promontory, Utah. Each reading is followed by three pages of student activities which include reading comprehension questions, guided reading activities, vocabulary activities, student summaries, and a student response essay question.

There is enough material to cover 2-4 days of class, depending on if one or two lessons are completed in each period. My students typically complete a lesson in about 25-30 minutes.
