Product Description
This activity is part of my full Unit bundle for westward movement and expansion! - Check out the bundle and save! - Westward Expansion Full Unit Bundle

This lesson includes three stations to help students analyze primary sources and learn about the Oregon Trail pioneers, the Mormon Trail pioneers, and the gold rush 49ers. Each station provides photographs, written sources, drawings and QR code links to videos. I've even included a link an animated video I created about the Oregon Trail! The graphic organizer prompts students to explain why each group went westward, what they experienced while traveling, and the impact of their journey.

This lesson includes a 2 page lesson plan, 29 primary sources, and a graphic organizer (with a key) and an exit ticket.

This lesson plan is linked with NYS Social Studies standards, however, I'm sure you could add your own.

This zip file includes a PowerPoint version (fully editable), a PDF version, and a link to a Google Slides version.
