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
Pioneers Head West
...and Railroads Connect East and West.
Enjoy this lesson! This activity is great for VISUAL AND VERBAL LEARNERS!
