This is for a WHOLE unit on Westward Expansion I sell the items individually (see my store to see examples of the assignment and Power Point that you would be purchasing), however, this is a highly discounted price since it is a large bundle. Make sure you do not purchase my Power Point separately because the same PowerPoint is posted here are well.
This has everything you will need to teach The Westward Expansion Unit. In my Westward Expansion Unit I included the following main topics:
Louisiana Purchase (Lewis and Clark etc)
War of 1812
Mexican American War
Indian Removal Act
Trial of Tears
I have used this with Middle and High school students and it works great for both levels.
You will get the following items:
Power Point on Westward Expansion
Notes that go along with the PowerPoint
Guided Notes for the students to go along with the Power Point
Self Studies for some of the objectives
Homework that matches the Power Point (called the Objective and Vocabulary Sheet)
Lesson Test (2 Versions)
Newspaper Article Project
Children’s Book Group Project
Brian Pop Web Search
Homework Assignment (This is has students make a timeline, identify items on a map, and do a reading portion)
Manifest Density Picture Analyzing Assignment
Lewis and Clark Web Search (Answer Key Provided)
Oregon Trail Game Power Point
Gold Rush Fun Facts Power Point
I break the Power Point/Notes into Objective numbers, for example Objective #1 covers Louisiana Purchase (Lewis and Clark), Objective #2 covers War of 1812. This keeps it manageable for the students and teacher; thus, students know what was learned on each day. The Power Point covers Objectives 1-7, however, there are self studies for Objectives #2,5 and 7. You can either teach the kids through the PowerPoint, or have them read the self studies (these are in PDF form) or do both.
The file has several folders, breaking them up into Notes, Homework, Classwork and Projects.
I have used this unit many, many times and have GREAT success with student’s retention of material.
There is a typed up Unit Plan for this unit so you can see how I taught the 3 week Unit. This can be adjusted for your needs, but just wanted to show you how I taught the unit.
