Playing settlers starting for Oregon in 1846, students determine which supplies to carry west, keep diaries, make trail decisions, and write reports to gain credits that move their wagons across a map. Fate Cards interject problems such as weather, wagon breakdowns, and wild animals. Designed for high flexibility, many of the 15 activities may be used as stand-alone lessons (each takes about a period to complete). Sixteen-page student guides assist in record keeping and report writing, while a teacher's guide includes objectives, daily procedures, rubrics, and handout masters. Grades 5–8. Interact.
