Product Description
This lesson provides a fun and interactive way for students to practice analyzing geographic context and gain content knowledge about each of the territorial additions in the mid-1800s.

There are five stations that can be set up around the room for students to visit. Each of the five stations has a visually appealing map and timeline that discuss the major events relating to the addition of that territory to the United States. Students utilize a graphic organizer to label the territories, learn a few key vocabulary and by utilizing the timeline, they can describe the Geographic Context of each territory added.

The Gadsden Purchase is provided as an example, and then students also learn about the Oregon Country, the Texas Annexation, the Florida Cession, the Mexican Cession and the Louisiana Purchase.

This lesson includes a 1 page lesson plan, 5 printable station visuals (in sizes 8.5x11 and 11x17), and a 2 page graphic organizer (with a 2 page key) and an exit ticket.

This lesson plan is linked with NYS Social Studies standards, however, I'm sure you could add your own.

The zip file included a PDF version only. Because this lesson includes clip art, I need to protect the integrity of the art. If you would like me to change something with the item you purchased, just let me know, and I can provide you with a different version.
