    Westward Ho Unit
    By JD

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Just wanted to share a quick version of a unit I did last year that my kids LOVED! We studied Westward Ho and I did a unit on Lewis and Clark. We read Captain's Dog as a whole class and then I divided my class into groups of 4. Each group was to study a given trail west, Mormon, Santa Fe, etc. I had a whole list of tasks they had to do. We made a huge map on paper bags that had the edges burned and each group had to draw their trail, then they had to build a covered wagon. I have table desks in my room so that was the base and they had to build the top, have the contents they took on the trail and they had to fit in it too! It was so terrific! I have photos on file if you want a visual! It came out great! Each child took and identity. It was on display for the school and parents. The children told me it was the best project they ever had! E-mail me if you have any questions.
