To study the causes, major events, and results of the Mexican War.
1 class period
Read with the students the story about the Mexican War. At the end of each paragraph, have class members do the mapwork.
I recommend providing colored pencils, if available. My students have always liked doing map exercises and using colored pencils adds to their enjoyment.
Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz.
The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
