The Pioneer T-Shirt

Gets artsy during your westward movement unit, studying values and symbols of the pioneers through a t-shirt design group activity. After prior research on Manifest Destiny and the settler experience, groups create t-shirts the pioneers may have bought in the 1840's. There are some guiding questions you may want to print onto a template for groups to fill out. Once finished, the designs are hung on display and learners categorize them by theme into a laundry basket.
