Westward Trails

Students 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. Students 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.

As a Lesson Planet member, not only am I privy to a wide array of creative and effective lesson plans and materials, but it has saved me so much time, just not having to start from scratch.
