Westward Ho!

Students participate in an Oregon Trail simulation in order to learn the hardships that the emigrating settlers faced. For this U.S. history lesson, students are required to work as a team and use the internet to research a final destination, departure date, route, and provisions for their wagon train. Students within the team are assigned a role, which dictates their responsibilities.
