Strengthen literacy and hit social studies standards as students venture west along the Oregon Trail in the 1800s.
Literacy skills help students determine appropriate traits for their characters to ensure chances of survival on the journey. Advance students’ reading and writing skills as they study primary sources about westward expansion and plan a route using a topographical map to evaluate the land and its resources.
Disease and accidents strike throughout the expedition, prompting students to expand civic and critical-thinking skills. Students reexamine the fear and misrepresented threat of Native American attacks in an encounter that provides the basis for the unit’s critical incident.
