Students work in teams to answer questions about various topics from the Westward Expansion Era in the form of "Letters" passed around to each group. Each team places their answer into the envelope and "mails" it along for the next team to answer. Once every team has answered all 9 questions, the answers are shared and students evaluate the accuracy of each answer.
Additional resources required: 9 letter-size envelopes, tape or glue, 3x5 index cards or small pieces of paper for answers
