5th Grade, Teaching

In cross-curricular efforts to support the 5th grade Westward Expansion study, students conducted an in-depth study of the transcontinental railroad. In cooperative groups, they created 3-dimensional models of the transcontinental railroad using found materials. Students had a blast! Take a look at their process!
