USHIST.6.jpg (25299 bytes) Ten Internet-based student activities ask students to think critically about topics in United States history to 1900. Students will write letters back to England from Jamestown, determine the four most important events of the Revolutionary War, interpret pictures of the Transcontinental Railroad from different multicultural perspectives, and decide whether they should venture from their eastern homes into the unknown promises of Gold Rush territory. Each activity is linked to the National History Standards and contains objectives and assessment recommendations.
