PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

America has a long history of exploring territory and and expanding westward. The period of westward expansion in the 1800s in the United States was an exciting, adventurous time including danger, intrigue, and with the building of the Transcontinental Railroad, it became a much easier proposition to relocate to the west.

This SmartBoard presentation and student reading comprehension sheet walk fourth through sixth graders through some of the highlights of the Transcontinental Railroad, how it began, the companies who were involved, the challenges they faced, and how it changed the face of America forever. An incredibly influential development in American History, it is an important topic that shouldn't be overlooked in a study of Westward Expansion.

This engaging activity pack includes:
* 27 page SmartBoard presentation focusing on the Homestead Act.
* Several relevant maps incorporating map skills and geography concepts
* 2 page student recording sheet for students to fill out during the SmartBoard presentation
* 2 page teacher key for the student recording sheet

This activity pack will enrich any classroom study of Westward Expansion!
