Westward Trails

Learners explore the emigration of people following the Platte River Road and the impact this has had on Nebraska. They identify with trail life. In small groups students analyze pictures of trail life and landmarks paired with journal samples. Learners take a field trip to The Mormon Trail Center, Florence to experience first hand the artifacts and primary documents of the Mormon people and life along the trail.
