Covered Wagons

Today we learned about covered wagons and how they were used to travel out west. We learned that there was a 2,000 pound weight limit. After studying the materials and supplies needed for the trek, students chose specific items they thought they needed for their trek. The items were listed with their weight. They could not go over 2,000 lbs! Please see video below of students working hard. Also see the video we watched about the struggles the Donner Party encourted on their journey out west.

Thanks!
