TRANSCRIPT

  • EXPLORING THE EXPANSION OF THE UNITED STATESTerritories Transformed

  • During the 19th century . . . The borders of the United States changed dramatically! The country acquired new and substantial territories, which were later divided into states.

  • To understand these changes . . .Lets play a game.Divide into 3 groups that will represent France, Spain, and the United States.You will be given puzzle pieces that correspond to your territories, which will be transferred from one group to another.Please note: This game simplifies the process of expansion by using present-day states to represent the United States land gains. For example, the Louisiana Purchase is symbolized by the transfer (from France to the United States) of the present-day states within the Colony of Louisiana. Although territorial divisions often cut across the boundaries of present-day states, this simplification was made for ease of play.
