Create a Railroad Song

Fifth graders use the internet to read about the ceremony at Promotory Point, Utah to celebrate the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad. After reading the material, they discuss the race between the two railroad crews and the history of the railroad. In groups, they create a railroad song and perform it in front of the class.

As an ESL teacher, I find a lot of great ideas and useful materials from this site. I can probably spend hours just going over lesson plans and materials.
