The I&M Canal Teacher Resources
These two lesson plans focus on the workers who built the I&M Canal. They include primary source document analysis, along with a Power Point presentation to support the activities, and a bibliography for further research.
This project was made possible by a generous grant from the Illinois & Michigan Canal Heritage Area Internship Grant Program.
We now carry the book Passage to Chicago A Journey on the Illinois & Michigan Canal in the Year 1860 by Tom Willcockson. Click HERE to get your copy today!
