NEW! We have created an Oregon Trail Simulation Activity with lesson plans, resources, and worksheets in which students become travelers on the Oregon Trail!
This is a 34 page interactive lesson plan activity and game that will directly involve students in the Oregon Trail experience. Students begin their journey in Independence, Missouri by forming their wagon family. They then have to purchase supplies at the general store before leaving.
This is a very comprehensive packet that could easily be adapted and used for math as well. This is an experience that my students have really enjoyed.
