A Growing Nation

Overview

Being the new kid on the block wasn't enough for the United States. Early Americans wanted their nation to be bigger, too. (And probably badder.) They succeeded--but at a cost. In this unit, students learn how the United States began to grow as soon as it became a nation, and they examine the effect of this growth on societies already established in North America. 

** This unit groups together lessons that were previously found in the Geography Library and Road to the Constitution units. You can still find those lessons in their original locations.
