Product Description
Westward Expansion File Folder Game

“Westward Expansion File Folder Game” is a Social Studies game for 2-4 players. The game is a fun way for students to learn about the hardships pioneers endured while traveling to the West. Students spin a spinner or roll a die to move forward on the board. Each turn requires a player to take a game card, read the event, and follow the directions on the card (i.e., move back 2 spaces). Play continues until a player reaches Oregon on the board. Create several sets for the whole class to play, or just use one in your literacy center.

Included in this product:
• Directions – printing and storage suggestions
• Board Game – 2 versions: color and B&W
• 30 Game Cards
• Spinner (some assembly required)
• Directions for Players

A spinner template is included with this product, but dice could easily be substituted for the spinner. If you choose to make the spinner, you will need a metal brad (fastener) and a paper clip to assemble the spinner.

PLEASE NOTE: This game is INCLUDED in my 5-day lesson on Westward Expansion, which you can get by clicking on the link below:
