There are 3 main activities:
Westward Expansion Vocabulary:
Introduce the vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These colorful posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too!

Informational Articles:
Have students read the informational articles about the Oregon Trail. Each article has questions and scenes for students to connect and color. Next, read the character studies where students will Meet Abigail Jane Scott. The character studies come in color and black and white for students to color. You could have students work with a partner or in small groups. These could also be used at a center or learning station activity.

Student Activities:
There is a custom-created graphic organizer to highlight key information, and/or use for review. Have students complete the Map Activity and 5 page Flip-Up Booklet with a cloze passage, timeline activity, important items, and four facts about life on the Oregon Trail. I usually have students complete the pages of the flip-up booklet at a station or as a center activity. Then we build the pages of the booklet one by one. The booklets fit perfectly inside their interactive notebooks or as a stand alone booklet. You could fold a 12x18 piece of construction paper in half to make a cover for the booklets.
