Trailblazers- Now and Then

Students examine and study the routes of trailblazers. In this American history lesson, students find a route on a map and compare that to the route of trailblazers. Students will then compare that map with a topographical map to discuss it. Finally, students study the biography of Jedediah Strong Smith and prepare a character presentation.
