American West thinking quilt designed to provide pupils with the opportunity to make links between different events and consider their impact on the development of the American West.

Pupils first read the boxes and add a sentence to any that they are not sure of with the support of peers, revision guides or the teacher.
They then colour code them based on catagories they could fit into such as ‘law and order’ and ‘conflict with Plains Indians’.
You can find the lesson that this thinking quilt is a part of here:
