Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To review the roles played by miners, cowboys, and farmers in the development of the West.

TIME:
1 class period

The lesson begins with a section entitled People of the West. Students work individually to correctly identify whether miners (M), cowboys (C), or farmers (F) are being described throughout a series of 25 descriptions.

Example:
(1) _____ received 160 acres of land as a result of the Homestead Act
Answer: F

Next, in a section entitled Grasshoppers Overrun a Kansas Farm, students read a primary source account describing the challenges homesteaders faced in the Great Plains.

The lesson concludes with two fun games for the class, THE MINING GAME and THE GAMBLER'S GAME. My students have found these two games to be very exciting!

Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
