Transcontinental Railroad Citation Activity

The purpose of this activity is to give students experience citing different types of sources.  First, students must quote a source from their textbook and then they use a website given to determine how to cite the textbook.  Students are then asked to use a variety of different online sources and cite those as well.

Citation Activity

This is an activity that WILL NEED TO BE EDITED!  I created it using specific references to the Social Studies textbook I use in my classroom (History Alive!  America through Industrialism) and you must change it to reflect your own book. I also have students using EBSCOHOST which is a source that may not be available to you.  (It’s free to use in schools in Kentucky, but may not be available from students homes.)
