Exploring Manifest Destiny

Rather than a test for “Manifest Destiny” your unit grade will be based on a project.  The project is divided into two parts: an illustrated map, and a brief summary explaining this illustration.  You will have class time to work on this project.

You may work alone or with ONE other partner.  DO NOT ASK to make a larger group.  If you work with a partner, be sure both of your names are on the project that is turned in.

Information can be found in the textbook, on the class blog or online.  We have covered much of the material in class as well.

PART ONE:  The Illustrative Map
On a large paper or poster board, draw a large map of the United States.  THE MAP DOES NOT HAVE TO BE PERFECT.  Inside this map, show or symbolize how the following people and events played a part in Manifest Destiny:

            A) Jefferson & Louisiana Purchase                  F) The Trail of Tears/Buffalo Loss
            B) The Lewis and Clark Expedition                G) The Transcontinental Railroad
            C) Mountain Men                                            H) Texas Independence/Alamo
            D) The Oregon & California Trails                  I) The Forty-Niners/Gold Rush
            E) The Mormons and Missionaries                  J) The War with Mexico

Note:  If it is an event that had a route or trail, you should show this on your map. Routes must include important physical features of the United States.  For example, the route for the Lewis and Clark Expedition must include the Missouri River, Rocky Mountains, and Columbia River.

You should neatly title the map: “Manifest Destiny” and neatly color and decorate the map.

PART TWO: The Summary
On the back of your poster, attach a one-page summary explaining your drawings.  Describe what is going on in your poster.  For example: To symbolize the Lewis and Clark Expedition, we drew a picture of Sacagawea and her baby. We also traced their route from the Mississippi to the Pacific Ocean and back.  It shows all major stops like Fort Mandan and Fort Clatsop and physical features of the expedition such as the Missouri River, Rocky Mountains and Pacific Ocean.

Poster:  75 points.
Summary: 25 points
TOTAL=100 points.  Minimum requirements earn a “C” or 75 points Effort will determine “A’s” & “B’s.”

Due Date:                  .
