The goal of this project is to support the continued development of a fifth-grade social studies curriculum that is designed to help students understand the relationship between historical changes in the Blackstone River Valley related to industrialization and transportation and the continued transportation developments of the present and their impact on community life in the Valley. The specific curricular developments for this project will focus on incorporating into the social studies curriculum presentations by curators from Slater's Mill Historical Museum in Pawtucket, RI, a field trip to the Museum of Work and Culture, Woonsocket, RI and teaching materials discussing the sources of change in American History as they related to changes in modes of transportation.
