Have you been trying to wrap your head around how to present Westward Expansion in a fun and engaging way?! Well, here is your solution. Included in this purchase is a complete unit of study outline including suggested materials and handouts. I have taught this unit for many years and each year it gets better! My students could not wait to get going with this project where they learned in cooperative groups (Wagon Families) all about Westward Expansion and the Oregon Trail.
