Groups will research one land acquisition by the United States between the years 1803-1854.
Students will create a skit that accurately teaches the class about the land acquisition. Students will
demonstrate understanding of how the United States acquired land: “Bought It - Fought It - Took It.”
Students must include:
1. The year the land was acquired.
2. Which is correct about how the land was acquired: “Bought It - Fought It - Took It.”
3. The country the land was acquired from.
4. Any other important information about the land acquisition.
Students will perform skits. Other students will take notes over skits for the most important info.
When finished we will watch Crash Course: War and Expansion.
Students will read and take notes over what they read to create a digital children’s storybook or song about groups (49ers, Mormons, Chinese Americans, Railroad Owners) going West. Students also need to include Manifest Destiny, Lewis and Clark, and the Louisiana Purchase.
Students will create storybooks about groups going west.
