Hitch up the wagons and get your students writing with this great social studies project! Students will create and write a journal as a pioneer in the 19th Century. As an option, students can also have a pioneer-style portrait created to go with their journal project. This file includes everything you need to make this amazing writing project a memorable one. The file includes a grading rubric, teacher score guide, parent letter and reminder notes, student tip sheets, journal paper, and more!
This is a great activity to have students work on their historical analyzing skills and writing skills all at the same time.
