Welcome to 5D's Westward Expansion Wiki.

Westward expansion was an exciting time in American history and one which greatly changed the United States geographically, economically, and culturally.

Your job is to research different aspects of this time period and share what you find here. You'll use books, websites, and encyclopedias for taking notes and then you'll convert those notes into paragraphs. You'll also add pictures and other graphics connected to your topics. We'll share the finished product with your families and classmates. Good luck.
