Product Description
Westward Expansion is my favorite era of history! Need another activity to prepare for GA Milestones or your state's test that isn't a worksheet? This is a 14 page minibook specifically addresses the key concepts of Westward Expansion. This is the introduction to going west and life on the frontier and is perfect for the beginning of your unit. There are vocabulary words, a vocabulary quiz (at the end), 34 comprehension questions, a time-line (for students to create based on the information in the book), and a writing prompt. This product briefly discusses manifest destiny, the Indian Removal Act, frontier life, and more! Check back soon for more mini-books!

Thanks & Happy Teaching!-Bow Tie Guy

This is NOT the same as the Westward Expansion task cards found hereas this specifically emphasizes the vocabulary concepts of Colonial Life rather than a multiple choice format task card. There is a copy-saving answer sheet/recording sheet provided, as well as an answer key! This is the perfect review after teaching about Westward Expansion or in preparation for the GA Milestones Test. Cards are B&W for ink saving and look great printed directly on colored card stock!
