Product Description
This is a quick one day lesson that helps students to understand the point of view of those who supported the Manifest Destiny. Students will analyze a painting from John Gast (America's Progress) and two quotes from John O'Sullivan.

Students practice Historical thinking skills - Point of View and Historical Context.

This lesson plan is linked with NYS Social Studies standards, however, I'm sure you could add your own.

The zip file included a PDF version and a Word document for easy editing.
