Digital Learning at Home: BUILDING THE TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILROAD
(Recommended for Grades K-5)
Put yourself in the shoes of a worker on the Transcontinental Railroad. This incredible feat of engineering began in 1863, but it took until 1869 for the project to be completed. Over 1,700 miles later, the country was united by rail for the first time!

The Durham Museum’s digital learning program offers unique opportunities for learners of all ages. Taught by educators, these engaging and interactive classes follow National and State Social Studies Standards and are filled with primary sources featuring artifacts, videos and photographs. These free exchanges can be accessed by Zoom on a laptop or mobile device, no matter where instruction takes place, including by students who are learning from home.
All digital learning programs are provided at no cost thanks to our generous museum supporters and underwriters. You can help us continue making these opportunities possible by becoming a member or supporting our annual fund campaign today!
