This is a fun way to learn about what life was like on the Oregon Trail in th emid-1800s. In this class, learners will participate in a simulation (that I created) and pretend as though we are in a wagon train heading west.

This class is taught in English.
-Students can describe struggles that were common for people traveling along the Oregon trail. -Students can locate natural geographic sites that were destination points along the Oregon trail.
I have a BA in Political Science, a MA in secondary teaching certification in all social subjects 5-12 and a post-Masters degree in educational technology to enhance learning. I've taught social studies subjects for 10+ years, with a majority of my experiences teaching American History. I've also attended several workshops and professional development opportunities focused on incorporating America's past in current discussions about today's landmarks, historic buildings and monuments.
Optional homework (at the discretion of the parent) Keep notes during the simulation, with details along the trail, and complete one option below: -After the simulation, once you've reached the destination, write a letter to someone from where you used to live, and either persuade them to make the journey or caution them against making the journey. Include specifics regarding what was "experienced" along the trail. -Provide 7+ hashtags that would describe the journey through the Oregon Trail.
1 file available upon enrollmentLearners should bring one dice and/or have access to a digital dice. A option guide will be provided for learners who enroll, and any who do not want to use it should plan on having a piece of paper and a 6-sided dice (just one) or a digital version of one.
Formative discussion and question/answer will be included throughout.
2 hours 55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
