Product Description
This is a 1-hour lesson where students investigate the experiences of both the Donner and Sagar parties. Students will discover that some of the experiences were down to a combination of errors, problems and good decisions.

There are four documents in this lesson:

- A teacher PowerPoint which guides students throughout the lesson with engaging images and clear examples.
- Donner Party Fact Map: a set of fact bubbles which students have to categorise.
- Sagar Party Fact Map: same as above.
- Reviewing the Accounts: students use their research to consolidate their learning about the two groups of people.

The lesson ends with an Exit ticket asking students to decide what the experiences were for the parties involved.
