Westward Expansion (Manifest Destiny) Webquest uses a great website that allows students to get a better understanding of the key events, people, and conflicts of Westward Expansion from the 1830s to the 1870s. The webquest is very easy to follow and full of information for students in grades 4-9.
The webquest contains 60 questions and an answer sheet is included for the teacher. A QR code is included along with the traditional website link. The webquest takes most students at least 50 minutes to complete depending on their age. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students.
I would like to thank Dandy Doodles for their wonderful clip art!
