This wonderful review game is fun, competitive, and effective! This game gets all students actively thinking about key terms of Westward Expansion - which is how they learn! Each House of History slide has six Westward Expansion terms that teams work to identify by giving clues to their partner. The clue-giver can see the terms on the projection, while their partner is facing away from the projection, so they can not see the terms. The teacher can choose which version students play - Catch Phrase, Pictionary, or Charades.
Beef Cattle Raising
George Armstrong Custer
The Battle of Little Bighorn
The Battle of Wounded Knee
New Beginning for former slaves
Homestead Act of 1862
I usually let my students play House of History at the end of each unit for test prep. Students beg to play the game, they love it! Give it a try, I have complete confidence your students will love this game.
Please let me know if you have questions about the game. Enjoy!
