Traveling the Oregon Trail

Our week learning about the Oregon Trail consisted of writing a diary entry as a pioneer, making a checklist of supplies, being creative and making a video about the Oregon Trail, mapping out the trail, labeling wagon parts, and even learning about animals on the trail such as oxen and buffalo. My youngest daughter's spelling list even had to do with words we were reading from the Oregon Trail.

don't care how old my kids get, they will always enjoy picture books. So I checked these books out for reading during the week. 

Who could also forget about the childhood game we all loved to play as kids when computers were still new. I just so happened to have the Oregon Trail game by Mecc. I couldn't believe the CD-Rom still worked with my Windows 10. 

Some great resources I used were, Tina's Dynamic Homeschool Westward Ho! Lapbook, and Lapbook Lesson's Oregon Trail Lapbook.

We got this cute printable board game also from Tina's Dynamic Homeschool.
