Life in the 1800s was very different than what we experience in the 21st century. Most Americans lived on the eastern coast of the country. The first Americans to travel west were called pioneers. Students can learn about these brave, adventurous people in the Pioneers Project Pack from In the Hands of a Child. This 77-page Project Pack includes a 21-page Research Guide with a complete timeline, famous pioneers, and recipes; and 21 hands-on activities to help your student learn what life was like as an American pioneer.
