A Day in History – Investigation Station | August 17 – Davy Crockett
A Day in History – Investigation Station is a series of fun sleuthing research activities based on a single event on a specific day in history!
Students will learn about an event and be given several topics from which to choose to ‘investigate’. After some exploration, students are asked to write what they have discovered and name used sources.
This 257 page book holds an 1893 copyright and was written to give information about historical figures living just before and during the beginning of United States history. It is not meant to be used as a textbook but rather a supplement to add stories and facts about the people written about within the pages. It is recommended for 5th-12th grades.
Suggested uses: Use with your regular curriculum to add another layer of information or give to students to use as a source information when doing research and/or projects.
This 261 page book holds a 1900 copyright and was thought of as the ‘first book on American history used in schools in preparation for… more ‘formal’ textbook learning.’ It is however not for young readers. It is not a textbook but rather reads as an informational book that explains the history of the United States and is best read by 5th -8th graders but can also be used by high school students as a reference as well! It would be a good addition to read along side your normal curriculum.
See description below for chapter titles.

About the book: The building of the first transcontinental railroad was one of the great works of man. Its promoters were men of small means and little or no financial backing outside of the aid granted them by the Government. It took nerve and good Yankee grit to undertake and carry out the project. Bailey attempts to give an accurate portrayal of the process.
