Western Expansion

Here are a few materials for I.8.b – Distinguish between economic and geographic factors.  Enjoy – and let me know if you recommend any changes to these!

The first activity is what I call a Wall Activity – and when you look at it, you’ll see why.  This is a good introduction to geographic and economic factors and their role in the Western Movement.

Download the fifteen-page document that includes page-sized pictures to use in the activity.

The second activity is a t-chart in which students distinguish between geographic and economic factors that supported the Western Expansion.

Download the activity here.
