Westward Expansion Task Cards
These are task cards I created to use to check for mastery with our Westward Expansion/Suffrage & Abolitionist unit. These are designed with 4th grade in mind, but they could be used in other grades are remediation, pre-teaching, or extension. Each is open ended to ensure they are not just guessing the answer and not really taking the time to think about and apply what they know. I included a blank answer sheet students could use to record their thoughts. It is large enough to allow for the short answer. I have my students use notebook paper to save on copies, but the option is there! You can copy the answer sheets front to back.

~Louisiana Purchase
~Lewis and Clark Expedition

I hope your class gets great use out of these task cards!

Morning Work, Homework, Class Work Review (2 weeks)
This is the morning work I created for my class to complete throughout our New Nation/Government unit. In the beginning, they will utilize their resources to research the answers.

This could also be utilized if you are short on time and need a product to guide your teaching and serve as a “workbook” and/or notes for students to study.

Westward Expansion/Famous Women Classroom Posters or Teaching Slides

This is the set of posters I created for my class to use while teaching our unit on Westward Expansion. I also take some time and include a few famous women who fought to end slavery and for women's rights in this same unit.

These have so many uses! I am starting off the unit with just these on the walls (and I will print copies for each student to paste in their notebooks). As we learn about the various concepts, students will place sticky notes with new learning, insights, questions, etc. about each.

You could also use these as a teaching document to display while discussing the skills for this unit, or print them out for student notebooks/notes. You could also create a bulletin board (interactive or informational) for your classroom. I am excited to see what they learn!!

Skills Covered:
~Louisiana Purchase
~Lewis and Clark Expedition
~Texas Acquisition
~The Alamo
~Mexican Cession
~Trail of Tears
~California Gold Rush
~Industrial Revolution (what it is and highlighting the steamboat, steam locomotive, and telegraph)
~Erie Canal
~Oregon Trail
~A map with each section labeled to show the progression of the United State's westward expansion

Women
~Elizabeth Cady Stanton
~Harriet Tubman
~Sojourner Truth


I hope your class enjoys these posters and you enjoy the discussions that come from them!

**I am working on updating my PowerPoints (teaching and Oregon Trail Simulation to include in this bundle. Be sure to keep an eye out for the email regarding the update!**
