Westward Expansion Trading Cards

Are you looking for a way to add interest to your Westward Expansion unit? Do you need more activities for your learning stations? “Westward Expansion Trading Cards” is a set of 54 trading cards highlighting people, events, locations, treaties and ideas. Print & laminate the cards to create a standard set of playing cards. "Educational Trading Card Games" details 3 original learning games. "Creating Educational Trading Cards" shows teachers and students how to make their own cards.
These trading cards are really great for children to see pictures of that time period. I will be using these in a center where the children will answer questions about the cards.

Always looking for ways to do "painless" research with my Library classes. Thanks!

Great trading cards. Thanks for the information about making your own!


Texas Independence (Online Activities)

The Texas Independence Web site seeks to restore Washington-on-the-Brazos and the Convention of 1836 to their rightful place in Texas history, of equal if not greater importance than the epic battles of 1835-36. Through innovative and exciting Web-based technologies, the site brings the struggle, compromise, and sacrifice of the Convention of 1836 to life. It introduces the men who founded a new nation to a new generation of Texans.

Fact-Filled Bingo:
Westward Expansion

Fact-Filled Bingo is a computer program sure to bring excitement to your Westward Expansion unit. The talking robot calls out random western topics complete with pictures and interesting facts. 40 bingo cards are provided. Use the companion program Fact-Filled Slideshow and a SmartBoard/projector to highlight 48 different Old West topics. Again the talking robot does the narrating. As a bonus I’ve included the manual “Text-to-Speech” which teaches you how to make PowerPoints talk.
This is great, love it! Can't wait to use it with students.

Great fun! My students really enjoyed! Thank you!

Fantastic product! Thank you!
