This is a collection of activities over the Oregon Trail. The last two weeks of the school year I allow my students to pick topics they want to learn about that we haven't covered. The Oregon Trail is a popular topic my students choose.
Included Activities are:
Create a wagon project
Create a trail journal project
Map the trail project
Activities on daily pioneer life
Basic facts on the Oregon Trail
Crossword puzzle activity over the facts
A simulation on what to bring with on the trail
Information on the diseases, medicines, indians, plants, and animals with some related activities.
The roles of women and children along the trail
Again, this is something that I have created, so I hope that you will find it useful. Please provide feedback to help me improve these activities.
