This ready to use Mapping Westward Expansion Activity will give students two different mapping activities. All students need to complete is an American History text book or websites on Westward Expansion. This is a great activity to leave with a substitute, since it requires no prep!
Included is Mapping Westward expansion, where students are asked to map the different purchases, treaties and military conquest that helped America fulfil Manifest Destiny. The second activity is the Physical Geography of Westward Expansion where students will visually see how geography shaped the settlement of land west of the Mississippi River.
