Product Description
We all know how difficult it can be to cover everything we wish to cover. Some topics simply get glossed over or are completely removed from our curriculum because of time constraints.

This is a simplified reading about the Homestead Act. Passed by Congress during the Civil War, this act helped pave the way for economic prosperity in the West by offering "free" land to settlers. This reading and follow-up questions will introduce your students to the basics of this act.

This is a great assignment for your challenged readers, EL students or to use as a homework assignment for all of your students.

Answer document included.
