In this project, students will break off into groups of five to teach the class about either the Mormon, Oregon, or Santa Fe trails, or Texas and California migrations in an engaging and creative way.This activity fits perfectly with any American history unit on Westward Expansion. Simply incorporate your own resources and unleash the students. You will be pleasantly surprised to see what great lessons the "student teachers" come up with and how they will empathize with all the hard work that you put into teaching. This will enable you to be the "guide on the side" for this activity. Comes complete with instructions, lesson plan template, project rubric, and outlines.
