Product Description
Activity goes along with a lesson on Manifest Destiny / Western Expansion.

This activity is meant to help students analyze "American Progress" by John Gast (which symbolizes Manifest Destiny) by helping them locate specific symbols in the painting. The goal is to help students learn what is Manifest Destiny and how white Americans in the 19th century viewed Western Expansion.

Each student will be provided with a copy of "American Progress" by John Gast (which symbolizes Manifest Destiny). The teacher will display the painting on the SmartBoard and have students come up to locate the symbols as the activity progresses.

The teacher will read specific prompts and the students will do what the teacher says (e.g. put a box around the miners).

Takes about 10-15 minutes depending on the length of your discussion.
