    Well, we did a really fun activity with this book. All the boys wrote advertisements for wives. We discussed what you would include (children, what you expect of a wife, a personal description, etc.). Then all the girls wrote reply letters as if responding to an ad (we didn't match them up since the kids are a little touchy about that sort of thing). We put them out in the hallway and everybody got a big kick out of them.

    We also did something called a Pioneer Roundup. We divided the kids into groups of three. One person was in charge of a display board, one person a handout, and the last a handmade artifact that went with the topic. We assigned each group a topic such as pioneer clothing, food, travel, Oregon trail, etc. Each group was also responsible for a 2-3 minute presentation. We invited other groups to tour our efforts. It was a lot of fun.

    Have fun!!!
