Product Description
Extend your students' learning about westward movement, pioneers, and 9 related westward expansion topics with this 5-skills-in-one reading, writing, and grammar craft. Students use content related to westward expansion topics to read, identify and sort by skill, then write to apply the skill. Use the craft 3 different ways: Choose from facts/opinions, possessive nouns/contractions, and nouns/pronouns. Use it with or without the writing element as an extension activity, whole group, or in a literacy center. Add the writing element to assess not only student knowledge of the westward expansion content they are learning, but also their ability to apply the grammar skill. *Please note: This craft is part of my complete Westward Expansion: Literacy Through Social Studiesunit.
