Product Description
Interactive Social Studies Notebooks are wonderful, and fun, ways to introduce your students to Westward Expansion!

I've been using notebooking in Social Studies for over a year now, and I love it! My units involve a lot of reading, and even includes mini-books and reading passages! These mini-books have foldables and other activities that focus on reading skills, such as summarizing, looking for main idea and details, highlighting important information, taking notes, etc. My students have loved watching their notebooks grow throughout the school year and enjoy looking back at what they have learned.
--------------------------------------------------------------------

This 83 page Westward Expansion packet is my complete Westward Expansion unit. It is a stand-alone unit, so it DOES NOT require a text book require a text book. The activities in this unit include the following items:

INTRO AND VOCABULARY
-KWL Chart
-Unit Title Pages
-Defining Vocabulary Mini-Book
-Vocabulary BINGO Board
-Vocabulary Matching Cards and Pockets
-Vocabulary Crossword Puzzle

This unit has many mini-books and activities to go with each one. These mini-books include:

Early Pioneers
Lewis and Clark
The Indian Removal Act and The Trail of Tears
Inventions that Helped Westward Expansion
The Mexican-American War
Oregon or Bust!
The California Gold Rush
Life on the Plains
Conflict on the Plains

Extension Activities:

Lewis and Clark Journal
Indian Removal Act Letter
Industrial Revolution Invention Convention
Homestead Act Poster

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Each mini-book is topic specific, and written for my fifth graders, however, I believe it can be used in grades 4th-6th. For each mini-book, there is a coordinating activity that can be added to a notebook. Reading the mini-book, then completing an activity helps cement the newly acquired knowledge into the minds of students!
