### How would you describe most of the jobs in Ohio during the late 19th century?

• A.

Car salesman

• B.

Lifeguard

• C.

Farmer

C. Farmer
Explanation
During the late 19th century, most of the jobs in Ohio were likely related to agriculture, given that farming was a primary occupation during that time. The state's fertile land and favorable climate made it conducive for farming, leading to a significant number of individuals being engaged in agricultural activities such as crop cultivation and animal husbandry. This explanation is supported by the answer choice "Farmer," which aligns with the predominant occupation in Ohio during the late 19th century.

### In 1843, each grade level had their own classrooms in school.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
In 1843, it is unlikely that each grade level had their own classrooms in school. This is because during that time period, education systems were not as advanced as they are today. It was more common for schools to have one room where all students, regardless of grade level, were taught together. This system was known as the one-room schoolhouse model. Therefore, the statement that each grade level had their own classrooms in school in 1843 is false.

C. Loam Soil and The Ohio-Erie Canal
Explanation
The correct answer is Loam Soil and The Ohio-Erie Canal. Loam soil is a fertile soil type that is well-suited for agriculture, allowing for increased food production and population growth. The Ohio-Erie Canal, on the other hand, provided a reliable and efficient transportation route, connecting Ohio to other states and facilitating trade and economic development. These two factors together contributed to the population expansion of Ohio during the mid 19th century.

A. Sand
F. Silt

Loam soil is a type of soil that contains a balanced mixture of sand, silt, and clay. Sand particles are larger and provide good drainage, silt particles are medium-sized and retain moisture well, while clay particles are smaller and help with nutrient retention. Therefore, the presence of sand, silt, and clay best describes loam soil. The other options such as water, granite, sandstone, rocks, plastic, and rubber are not directly related to the composition of loam soil.

Explanation
The population of Canton grew from 3,298 in 1840 to 14,873 in 1880 due to two main reasons. Firstly, the presence of loam soil for farming attracted settlers to the area. This fertile soil allowed for successful agriculture, leading to increased food production and economic opportunities, which in turn attracted more people to settle in Canton. Secondly, the Ohio-Erie Canal played a crucial role in the city's growth. The canal provided a reliable and efficient transportation route, connecting Canton to other parts of Ohio and facilitating trade and commerce. This improved connectivity and access to markets further fueled the population growth in Canton during this period.

### If you were a child in school in 1853, after 8th grade you would ...

• A.

• B.

Go to high school

• C.

Work on the farm

C. Work on the farm
Explanation
If you were a child in school in 1853, after completing 8th grade, you would most likely work on the farm. During that time period, education was not as widely available or compulsory as it is today. Many children had to leave school at a young age to help support their families by working on farms or in other labor-intensive jobs. Therefore, it was common for children to transition from school to working on the farm after completing a certain level of education.
