This is the morning work I created for my class to complete throughout our Westward Expansion/Suffrage unit. In the beginning, they will utilize their resources to research the answers. As we progress through the unit, students could complete this on their own as a review. This could be used as a preteaching, homework, morning work, centers...the possibilities are endless! This could also be utilized if you are short on time and need a product to guide your teaching and serve as a “workbook” and/or notes for students to study.
~Major events of the westward expansion of the United States (13 colonies, Ohio River Valley, Louisiana Purchase, Texas Acquisition, Mexican Cession, California Gold Rush, Oregon Territory
