Product Description

Bring history into the 21st century with this fun supplemental activity! This is a great resource for students who are learning about Westward expansion in American history.

With your purchase, you will receive teacher instructions, a handout for you students with detailed instructions, and a blank Instagram template. In this activity, students select a famous western outlaw to research online and create an Instagram post that "romanticizes" the historical accounts of this figure. It is a great opportunity to start a discussion with your students (great for middle and high school) about:

- how we portray ourselves on social media, and what we want people to see

- how famous historical figures are often dramatized, romanticized, and exaggerated

This typically takes about 30-45 minutes, but could easily be modified or assigned for homework. Enjoy!
