The Indian Removal Act

Eighth graders describe the relocation of Native Americans during the 1830's. The teacher pretends he has been told to move out of his room and the students are to help. They take the longest route and end up in the hall without any supplies. The teacher uses this situation an analogy to the Trail of Tears. The class discusses various court cases and the removal of the Native Americans.
