Product Description
This project on the westward movement of the 49ers works in the middle of a Gold Rush unit or as a culminating project. Bonus-it also looks great hanging from the ceiling for Open House!

Students are asked about the "Big Idea" of the westward movement of the 1840's and 1850's, what "Patterns" they see among the different methods of travel, "Details" about the time period, and are asked to draw which method of travel they think is superior ("Multiple Perspectives").

Students work individually or in groups to complete this project after given four 5/1/2x5/1/2 inch white diamonds. Each diamond must be filled out as explained in the directions and then glued on the construction paper square that can be prepped ahead of time or done by the students.

A rubric is attached for easy grading.
