Product Description

Students will learn about the significant events in the American West. The gallery walk contains 12 pictures/excerpts and 33 student questions. There are 8 stations and students will spend 3-5 minutes at each before rotating. I have included gallery walk instructions. Gallery walks are good kinesthetic activities to get students out of their seats and moving. My students enjoy gallery walks because most of them are sitting all day. The activity requires no teacher preparation other than posting the stations. Please message me if you have any questions. An answer key is included.
