Imagine what the communities along the Blue Ridge Parkway were like before the construction of this National Park. Class groups search for answers to this question by researching different communities located along the roadway. Each group examines primary and secondary source materials to determine the similarities and differences among the communities and how each was affected by the project. Although part of a unit focused on the Blue Ridge Parkway, the activities contained in this pack can stand alone and the approach utilized can be applied to other areas.
