Study History through Journal Keeping

Journal writing can be a fun way to bring history to life. Upper graders read a series of journals from the time of the westward expansion, specifically the pioneer journey along the Oregon Trail. They compose an ongoing journal from the perspective of a person traveling west. This project could produce a very interesting final paper.
