Pelow, Randall; And Others
This social studies unit traces the development of the American road system beginning with early Indian footpaths and continuing through horse trails, wagon roads, all-weather highways, and the first national road. The role played by the Conestoga wagon is emphasized as well as the physical, economic, and political factors involved in road development. The loose-leaf student activity book features twelve reading selections followed by questions and suggested activities, more than 20 illustrations, and eight maps. The teacher's edition contains historical background, supplemental activities, tests, a filmstrip text, answer keys, and a list of references. (KC)
