Manifest Destiny

Today, in lower school, we started to explore the question of 'How did the United States grow?' In class 6, we decided a bit of drama was necessary so we had our 13 original colonies squeezed into one corner of the classroom.


They were fed up of taxation without representation so they gained independence and became the USA. Next, one representative had to go and shake hands with Napoleon and complete the Louisiana purchase which doubled the size of the country.


The children highlighted the original 13 states on their maps and labelled the other states with the dates they joined the USA. 


 Also, check out these examples of the fantastic art work that the children completed last week...
