This is a booklet I have designed to be used by the teacher and/or students in order to enhance instruction for a unit on North American Settlement. I have used this unit to help teach that about a variety of groups that have settled in North America, including the earliest Native American tribes, Spanish settlement at St. Augustine, English at Jamestown, American colonies, Westward Expansion (Louisiana Purchase, Lewis and Clark’s expedition, the Oregon Trail, the California Gold Rush, the Homestead Act).
Each topic of settlement presented in the unit has its own page with illustrations and photos to help with the historical information provided. Pertinent vocabulary is in bold print and highlighted on each page. The file also corresponds to a unit test I have developed to assess students on each topic from the booklet. I also have a separate vocabulary quiz available and am developing a PowerPoint presentation to accompany the unit as well.
I have used this booklet to correspond/supplement various educational videos found through such resources as BrainPOP, BrainPOP Jr., and YouTube.
