Students plan a trip on the railroad. In this railroad creation and implementation lesson, students listen to the song "Working on the Railroad", make a map of where the track was laid and discuss the geographical challenges. Students view copies of vintage railroad posters, make observations about the posters and then create their own train poster. Students use time zone maps and modern Amtrak schedules to plot a train trip through all four time zones.
