Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Measles, Cholera, Dysentery, Influenza, Mumps, Survey, and Small Pox were just a few of the illness that plagued emigrants and settles of the 1800's. This PowerPoint was created by my class during a month long living history study of Westward Movement and settlement of California. They researched each illness and found picture to represent some of the associated symptoms. The slide show has continued to intrigue students every year since its creation.
The worksheet under the free preview is meant to accompany the slideshow for taking notes.
