High school students will gain an understanding of the history, significance, and impact of the turpentine industry in Florida, exploring its economic, social, and environmental aspects. This unit requires a significant amount of research and synthesis of information, best supported with access to the internet and libraries; and, if possible, transportation for reaching historical societies and other relevant destinations throughout the state. Each lesson states an objective and 1-3 activities to complete. The unit also offers additional study/exam questions and projects for additional research, as well as sample responses for instructor use. Students completing this unit, or even some portion of it, will be rewarded with a greater appreciation for historical research. For some, delving into the past may spark a future interest in Florida history or other activities of this type. This is not a workbook but a set of lesson plans to follow. Digital file.
