PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Bundled product includes Reading Passages, Comprehension Questions, Classroom Activities, Bingo Cards, and Teacher's Key.

This bundled product contains everything you need for your unit on Homesteaders and Wagon Trains At the beginning of the 1800s, America doubled its size when the United States purchased the Louisiana Territory from France. But, buying land alone doesn’t make a country grow: the land needs people. How does a government build a population? In this lesson, students will learn about the Homestead Act and the pioneers who headed west to help grow America!

This bundle includes my three Wild West Homesteaders Products:

• Wild West Careers: Homesteaders and Wagon Trains ($5.00 value)

• Homesteaders Bingo ($4.00 value)
