Students will enjoy learning about this period of American history through poems, music, games, discussion, art and creative writing. They'll learn what a petition is and start one of their own; they'll make Pony Rider puppets and work together to dramatize a Pony Express ride and they'll compete in a relay race to discover for themselves what the Pony Riders knew, that everybody on the team has to do his best and not let the team down. Students will cooperate in putting together a Pony Express museum to illustrate what they have learned and to share their knowledge with friends and family. All this and more will open up the pages of history and involve students in a fun learning adventure they'll always remember.
