Transcontinental Railroad Webquest (Route and Timeline)
This webquest was updated on 7/28/2017 because of changes to the original website. The webquest has been updated and is now easier to use.
Students will gain knowledge about the building of the Transcontinental Railroad by completing a map and timeline webququest on the Central Pacific and Union Pacific. The Transcontinental Railroad Webquest uses an amazing website created by Linda Hall Library. Please check the website below
The webquest contains 43 questions. The webquest is a great way to introduce or review the key facts about the building of the Transcontinental Railroad through the United States. An answer sheet is included for the teacher, as well as QR codes for students who would like to use them.
My students enjoy this webquest and it makes the Transcontinental Railroad more interesting. I usually use this webquest as an introduction activity for my students and it takes at least one class period to finish the webquest. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students.
