Another activity recently added to "Jump Back in Time" is the game called Westward Expansion. Here, you can ride a Conestoga wagon across the country as you learn how America grew from 13 colonies to comprise 50 states. If you don't remember why the Western reserve, Adams-Onis Treaty and the Gadsden Purchase are important, the Westward Expansion will tell you as you wagon tries to avert such disasters as a plague of locusts, a hungry crocodile or a raging fire.
