Westward Expansion

Young scholars research westward expansion in the United States using library books, classroom resources, and the Internet. Working with a partner they focus their research on one significant event. They condense their research to one paragraph which is added to a train track worksheet. Also, they illustrate their event before adding it to a class train track showing the chronological order of events.
