Narrated by Brian Unger, the History Channel's video How the States Got Their Shapes is a wonderful introduction to any middle school or high school US History or Civics class. The video emphasizes the role both geography, politics, and the railroads played in determining the boundaries of this nation's states.
This resource consists of 30 questions designed to maintain student engagement and promote a greater understanding of the video.
An answer key is included.
I have used this video as an introduction in my own class for years. My students have always loved it.
