Students play the game "Oregon Trail" online and fill out the accompanying webquest worksheet. Students are guided through how to access and play the game, given pointers and advice for beginning their adventure, and instructed how to persevere through their trip down the Oregon Trail. This game webquest was created to be utilized as part of a U.S. History Westward Expansion unit, but could also be folded into other subjects and topics as well.
Please also note that this webquest contains links to outside websites for additional content to expand upon topics. At the time of this posting, all links have been verified and are working, but I cannot predict when web addresses may change or be removed. If you notice a link not working, please let me know and I will rectify it. Additionally, FLASH player is required to view some of the media on the web links, so make sure your browser is capable of displaying FLASH elements.
