Aldridge Sawmill -- The Story in Numbers

Seventh graders view a recent transparency of the average rainfall zones of the state of Texas. Using another transparency, they identify the Piney Woods subregion of the Gulf Coastal Plain and locate national forests and sawmills. They read a story about the Aldridge sawmill and complete a worksheet with or without a partner. After reviewing the answers, they discover the characteristics of a boom and bust economy.

Your site is extremely easy to maneuver, and your search engine sorts beautifully--down to the grade level and super-specific subject matter. As a graduate student, studying for my teacher's license, I've found great, creative inspiration in the content links on your site. I count on your site more than any other I've found to date.
