Tell students that they will be going on a train tour of the USA! Pass out train tickets for that region. Have students label the departure and arrival information. Let students listen to a train whistle sound as they begin the lesson.
Have students view a virtual tour of the Hershey Factory in Hershey PA. After viewing the tour, they record information that they learned at Stop 1 in their notebook and draw an illlustration. Additonally, have them make a scrapbook page containing information about PA. I have students glue their train ticket to their scrapbook page also.
