“If You Traveled West in a Covered Wagon” by Ellen Levine, published by Scholastic (ISBN 0-590-45158-8), is a great non-fiction book for students to read to accompany your Oregon Trail unit. Students enjoy the colorful photos and easy to read text (Reading Level 3). The book has 80 pages.
There are two sets of 6 worksheets in this set plus answer keys. One set has page numbers to allow differentiation and the other set has no page numbers for your more able readers. The great part is . . . students won't notice the subtle difference. :)
These comprehension worksheets are a great way to check students' non-fiction comprehension as they locate facts from the text as they learn about life during the Oregon Trail days.
