This amazing, fun lesson includes a dynamic, visually engaging powerpoint with over 20 3D images that will captivate your students!
It tells the amazing story of the building of the First Transcontinental Railroad from the Homestead Act through the hammering of the Golden Spike at Promontory Point, Utah. The material is based on state and common core standards of US History.
The 22 slides start with 3 question a warm up to engage students the minute they walk in. The slides continue with notes students transcribe on an included graphic organizer and map. There are also primary source quotes you or students can read which help tell the story of the workers, planners, and Indian tribes along the way.
The zipped folder also includes a directions page with links to videos and readings that correspond to the lesson and a site to find red/cyan 3D glasses. Also included are 2 versions of the graphic organizer (a pdf and an editable word file).
This is a guaranteed amazing lesson your students will remember years later!
