Native Americans: Western Indian Wars 1866-1890 Webquest
Students will gain basic knowledge about Indian Wars in the West by completing an internet-based worksheet. Native Americans: Western Indian Wars 1866-1890 uses an amazing virtual museum website by Smithsonian National Museum of American History.
The webquest contains forty-six questions and is a great way to introduce or review the key facts and events on Westward Expansion and the American West. An answer sheet is included for the teacher.
My students love examining and reading about the Native American artifacts from the website. I usually use this webquest as a review activity for my students and it takes at least one class period, but usually two class periods for my students to complete the webquest. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students.
