Invite your students to have fun! This activity can be used for teaching transportation as an economic activity and Local History, too. It is relevant statewide.
This art-based activity is thoughtfully created to connect the required Social Studies content areas with place-based education that is meaningful to the student. Relevant Oklahoma Academic Standards for the Social Studies, including Process and Literacy Skills (PALS) for Learning, are identified for Grades 2 and 3 so the teacher can use them at either level.
“Teaching Notes” are provided to easily guide the teacher through the activity. The Student page is ready for students to color in after they read. It makes a great “reward” activity that many teachers use on Friday afternoon. It can also be used on Smart Boards. Resources for the teacher are identified with hyperlinks.
