Packing up our Wagons!

Today the students came in and saw that the desks have been transformed into covered wagons! Today, they acted as pioneers and had to decide what to bring in their wagon for their 5 month journey down the Oregon Trail. We watched a short video on the Donner Party to help us understand what the journey was really like. Please see video, pictures, and lesson below. Thanks!
