America on the Move

tells how transportation changed America. A classroom activity guide looks at foods and families on the move (1880s), workers and products (1920s), early highways (1930-40s), suburban communities (1950-60s), and movement of the world's people and products (1970-2000). A collection of 1,000 artifacts and photos can be searched by region, time period, or type of transportation (air, road, water) or vehicle. (Smithsonian Institution)
