In 1803, the United States purchased the Louisiana Territory from France. This began the great western movement of the 1800s. Half a million people took a risk and headed west, searching for land and adventure.
They were the American Pioneers.
I’ve developed a guide for you to use as you study the Pioneers of the American Frontier. Use it as a way to record what you are learning or as a springboard to direct your learning. If you have young teens, consider letting them take the lead completing the guide, fostering independent learning.
Exploring the American Pioneers Notebooking and Activity Unit will hopefully make your family’s life a bit easier as you learn about this period in history.
In it, you and your teen will find sections for:
- Mapping the Trail
- Famous Pioneers
- Government Influences
- Discussion Questions
- Drawing Pioneer Life
- Let’s Cook
- Let’s Create
- Let’s Play
It’s my hope that by using this guide, your study of the American Pioneers is easy, engaging and memorable!
