PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This package is similar to my regular Westward Expansion package, but it is better suited to the home school audience. I have removed the lesson plans and objectives posters, and I have consolidated the bell ringers into writing/thought journal prompts for better economy.

Included is the following:

Vocabulary - - (29 words) Simply print and cut apart. Your child can use these for spelling reference, and to guide focus on words he or she should pay attention to while reading the information and completing the activities.

11 writing/thought journal prompts - - You can use these before or after activities. Using prompts before activities helps activate prior knowledge. Using prompts at the end of activities helps to assess how well knowledge was processed.


30 Anchor Charts - - These charts show main ideas or concepts related to the study of Westward Expansion. You can post them, like regular posters, to help students understand the main idea of certain events or concepts. Most are very colorful. If you prefer not to print in color, choose grayscale in your print option. Topics include- -

Gold Rush
Homestead Act

Interactive Timeline - - Students work on sequencing events of Westward Expansion by physically cutting and pasting events and dates together. Timeline events include colorful pictures at the bottom. These can be printed in grayscale if you prefer not to print in color. The completed timeline is included as a key. So you can use either one with your students.
