Westward Expansion Vocabulary

Today we focused on words that were unfamiliar to us as we begin studying our Westward expansion unit. We played Ellen DeGeneres’s game called “HEADS UP” as a “check for understanding” tool. We then brought it outside and turned it into a relay race because the weather was SO BEAUTIFUL! The 5 vocab words we focused on today were:

American Frontier

Manifest Destiny

Homestead Act


Louisiana Purchase.

Please check out instagram at MsGray5 to see us playing our vocab games and be sure to discuss these words with your child at home.
