Westward Expansion Infographics

In social studies we have been studying Westward Expansion. Our assignment was to make an infographic all about Westward Expansion (right), and another on an event within Westward Expansion, I chose Louisiana Purchase (left).

Louisiana Purchase -- infographic Westward Expansion

When we were first assigned this project I had no idea what an ‘infographic’ was. As we learned more about the assignment I learned that it is a image such as a chart or diagram used to represent information or data. I spent a lot of time working on how to make it look visually appealing, and tried to find pictures that represented the topic well.
