Bears and Panthers Aplenty: Early Settlers Make a Home in Arkansas

Young historians research the Southwest Trail, which ran through Arkansas back in the 19th century. Pupils are divided into four groups. Each group researches a pioneer who blazed the Southwest Trail. Then, the group presents an oral or written report about the pioneer they have researched. Excellent websites are embedded in this plan.
