Product Description
Lewis & Clark, Zebulon Pike, Pioneers Head West, Gold Rush, Indian Resistance, Manifest Destiny, Mexican War, and Railroads.

This project is a project that I use to teach an overview of Westward Expansion. There are 8 events that students research information on. When they are finished I have them write an overall summary of Westward Expansion. This is a very STUDENT-CENTERED activity. There is a rubric included for easy grading. You can scale the score to fit points for your class. The directions are simple, and provide for a lot of student CREATIVITY!

The eight events that students investigate are:
Lewis & Clark
Zebulon Pike
Pioneers Head West
Gold Rush
Indian Resistance
Manifest Destiny
Mexican War
...and Railroads Connect East and West.

Enjoy this lesson! This activity is great for VISUAL AND VERBAL LEARNERS!
