This high-interest, engaging packet has 5 components:

• Packing the Wagon Activity: Using the provided Weight Guide Sheet and the Shopping Guide, students plan and prepare a shopping list of items to take on the Oregon Trail. The total weight of the supplies cannot be more than 2,400 pounds. This can either be an independent activity or a group activity! These can be used on the bulletin board.
• Bulletin Board Set: Use these pieces to create a bulletin board to display the final Packing the Wagon sheets from the student activity. Includes bulletin board header, letters, illustrated accent pieces, and photo directions.
The packet also includes a teacher-direction sheet with photo examples of the projects in use in the classroom. It is very clear and easy-to-use; basically just print and go! My students loved these activities; I think yours will, too!
