American migrationThis enquiry allows your students to get to grips with the push and pull factors that dragged people West in the 1840s and 1850s.

They will be introduced to a number of factors,  classify them as ‘push’ or ‘pull’ factors.

They will then consider how important each factor was via a graphical grading system.

This is a straight forward enquiry which gets to the heart of the reasons behind the massive migration in this period.
