The Transcontinental Railroad
Congratulations! The Central Pacific and the Union Pacific Railroads have joined together in Utah to form the first Transcontinental Railroad across North America. Our country began another wave of westward migration.
Your two crews should now join together and present your Railroad Posters to each other.
Your team should now make a large poster of the similarities and differences between the two railroad companies. Use the Venn diagram to help you plan your poster.
Congratulations again on a job well done!
