Westward Bound

Nassakeag Elementary School fifth-graders in Adele Gibbons’ class traveled back in time to the nation’s early years during a study of the Westward Expansion of the United States.

During the social studies unit, students researched the movement in depth and developed their skills as informational writers. At the end of the project, the class enthusiastically presented their research reports in a writers’ celebration with a “Wild West” theme.
