Assembly Line
Submitted by Kristi in Maryland
3rd Grade Teacher / Substitute Teacher

I was subbing in a 3rd grade class and we were discussing the assembly line, specifically, the automobile assembly line.

The teacher gave each student a copy of a U.S. map with pictures of car parts on the bottom of the map along with different colors of thread.

The students attached the threads from the car part to the state that manuufactured that particular part. This helped the students see for themselves just how an assembly line works.

They saw through hands-on ,that an assembly line involves several states working together to manufacture an automobile.
