I am so excited for you and your students to travel the Oregon Trail! With over 140 slides containing historical photos, maps, trail paintings, emigrant journal entries, interactive dice, and informational summaries on each of the 17 trail stops, this PowerPoint presentation is an extremely valuable resource for any Oregon Trail or Westward Expansion unit! Think of this presentation as a visual guide, or even a set of notes through the entire Oregon Trail - from beginning to end. Photos of each site, distance to the next stop, emigrant descriptions of various dangers, etc...
This resource is also a part of my Early American History Bundle! Save 25% on this resource and others by purchasing the discounted bundle!
It's a historic treasure trove of information regarding the Oregon Trail. No need to spend hours searching the internet for pictures, information for each site, or emmigrant quotes. It's all here for you. Use as much or as little as you would like. This presentation can be used as a stand alone product for any Oregon Trail unit, read it like an ebook, or I like to use it as a visual guide when my students go through the Oregon Trail Classroom Simulation Lesson
(also available in my store). All slides are in an order that I have found to be helpful. Feel free to move, delete, or duplicate any slides in an order that best fits your traveling needs. Year after year, this simulation has proven to be one of the best ways for my students to truly understand the trials and excitements of the Oregon Trail. I wish you the best, and keep up the great work helping your students grow and prosper!
