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? There are twenty four reading passage task cards specifically addressing the key concepts of Westward Expansion. These cards are utilized in three different ways to promote fluency within nonfiction texts and to enhance comprehension skills. Students have a recording sheet to use to answer questions (3 questions per card for a total of 72), generate their own questions, summarize important ideas, and review. You could use the task cards for three days and have each student to do all three recording sheets OR this could be differentiated based on specific reading skills that students need to practice.

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!
