This rich, varied site explores the role of transportation in America's history, thereby fulfilling many state standards on the importance of transportation in the building of America. Themes include Arts and Leisure, Immigration and Migration, Work and Industry, and other subjects connected to transportation in America. There are historical photos, tours through exhibits, a section on games for children, and a teachers' resource center. The Smithsonian has included an interactive activity in which students choose a transportation type, a particular vehicle, a purpose, an era in U.S. history, and a region and can then see stories and pictures of artifacts.
