Did you love playing Oregon Trail as a kid? This game brings the fun to the classroom! You have everything you need to bring gamification to your classroom with this set. Kids buy supplies and travel the trail in their quest to reach Oregon. It is so much fun, they won't even care that they are learning!
In this game, students take their families on a trip across the Oregon Trail. First, students must earn points to purchase supplies in Independence, Missouri. They can buy additional supplies at each of the forts along the trail. Once they have their supplies, students travel by earning miles. Students have to keep their families healthy and fed throughout the trip. Activity cards add unexpected twists to the journey!
