Product Description
The War was won! The states had united under a new government for the most part, and the population began to boom in the United States. Now the new Americans were running out of space and wanted to expand. To the east was the Atlantic, so people started to move west. Land purchases, exploration, and a new way of life brought settlers to a land that only frontiermen had dared move to. Despite danger and conflict, the people believed in Manifest Destiny ...

This unit is the seventh in the History of America series. This bundle is packed full of reading passages with my signature text-evidence based questions, interactive notebook pieces, QR codes, activities, a game, project, and writing pieces!

⭐"We need to learn from history, or we are doomed to repeat it." ⭐

This set is vital for any teacher trying to use their valuable time more efficiently.

My motto is "Work smarter, not harder."

All you have to do is pick your standard, print the pages you need for it, and add it to your own lesson plan! This set will save you HOURS of work (I know because this set took me over 200hours to create;). It is also more relevant than most text books for social studies. How do I know? I used to teach these standards from a text book ... hence my creating these units. What makes this set even better is that you can use it in your reading block and apply reading standards!
