Social Studies Social Science Instructional Activity Unit CCSS
Pioneers on the ever-expanding westward frontier made America great! These men helped open up new territories and showed others the way to them. These men were the pioneer hunter, the fur trader, the cattle rancher, the explorer, the soldier, the guide, the showman, the mountain man. In leading the way, pioneers faced endless danger from Indians, wild animals, illness and injuries. The pioneer was brave, resourceful and inquisitive. He had to know what lay beyond the next hill, river or mountain.
