BUNDLE: EARLY AMERICAN PIONEERS - Lesson, Reading Comprehension and Bingo

This bundled product contains everything you need for your unit on the Early American Pioneers. The terms “homesteader” and “pioneer” are often used interchangeably. In the “Wild West” lesson plans “homesteader” refers to those settlers traveling west to claim a homestead; the term “pioneer” refers to those who have actually settled on the frontier. Life as a pioneer was very demanding with many factors contributing to the hardships and dangers they faced.

This bundle includes my three Early American Pioneers products:

• Wild West Careers: Pioneers ($5.00 value)
• Reading Comprehension Passages and Questions ($4.00 value)
• Pioneers Bingo ($4.00 value)

Buy this bundle and get all three products for only $9.00!
