EdExcel 1-9 History 2016 - American West - 1. The early settlement of the West, c1835-c1862


Created by

A comprehensive selection of powerpoints covering the specification for the NEW EdExcel History course unit on the American West. This selection looks at the first topic, the early settlement of the West, c1835-c1862.

I have included a range of powerpoints and worksheets aimed at middle ability students. Most powerpoints have extension tasks and a variety of activities. The lessons covered include; the Plains Indians: their beliefs and way of life, Migration and early settlement and Conflict and tension.

The textbook used alongside these lessons is Pearson, Edexcel GCSE (9-1) The American West, c1835-1895
