Through this Westward Expansion activity, students will map out and identify the territories, the Trail of Tears, Native American regions, the Mississippi River, and more all while charting how they changed from 1820-1850. Students will find this information by using the PBS Westward Expansion Interactive map. Students will be looking off of the interactive map while they create and analyze their own map!
This map activity comes with a rubric and a STEP BY STEP instruction sheet (easy for kids to follow)! Attached is also a blank United States map that kids should create their work on!
