What's In That Wagon? - An Oregon Trail Activity

I feel like I haven't shared enough elementary school resources lately so this one is for all of the elementary school teachers out there. What's In that Wagon is a part of a Think Quest activity about the Oregon Trail. The Oregon Trail is included in most elementary US History textbooks. Like the famous video/ computer game The Oregon Trail, this interactive activity give students an opportunity to plan for and travel the trail.

If you're looking for other interactive activities regarding the Oregon Trail and settlement of the western United States, History Globe has an interactive map as well as a virtual tour of the Oregon Trail.
