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.
