- THE GREAT HORSELESS CARRIAGE RACE EBOOK
- THE GREAT HORSELESS CARRIAGE RACE LESSON PLAN
Your students will be captivated by this wild and wacky race and the pioneers who putt, putted along at the unheard of speed of 7 mph across the city of Chicago!
The winner started America’s first automobile company the following year. Within three years there were more than two hundred automobile companies. People were now beginning to see how the horse-less carriage could benefit them. Soon people would be able to live in the country and drive to work in the city.
The Great Horse-less Carriage Race marked the beginning of the automobile era and the end of the horse-and-carriage days. These early pioneers revolutionized the way people lived and worked. America would never be the same.
Review: Thank you so much for sharing this Ebook! If I could, I'd rate it an A+ It's not only an unforgettable story, but it's also an important history lesson about America's first car company that very few people are familiar with. After the story is read, I visualize students designing and illustrating their own vehicles that could have been part of this wild race! :) ~ Ruth S.
