Accidents along the trail
Life and Death along the trail
Provide students with materials to research what some of the physical dangers were along the Oregon Trail. Let students use the attached outline, or other writing resources, as a guide to help summarize. From their summary, students will warn new trail-goers by creating a Public Service Announcement (PSA) about trail safety. Final PSA’s can be given out loud in person, or video-taped if the equipment is available. Students could also utilize Sway, PowerPoint, or other presentation technology to assist them in the creation of their PSA.
Review the rubric included in the external resources to assess students' work.
