    There is a great website for the Oregon Trail National Park www.eparks.org. Actually you can tour all the parks that way. For hands on stuff there are several books: Pioneer Crafts and A Pioneer Sampler. There is a Pioneer Quilt Book which gives you the history of quilts for kids with art projects. I have a shelf of books on the subject at school. E-mail me at school and I can type you a list. We are fortunate that the local historical society has a pioneer program called Valley Days where the children step back in time to 1884 for the day and do a variety of projects from making butter and biscuits on a wood-burning stove, woodburning, tin punch, leather craft, rope making, sewing and an hour in a pioneer one room school with slates, quill pens, etc. I have directions for many of these. You can also get supplies for leather, tin, woodburning from Dick Blick Art Supply quick delivery, free shipping for orders $200 and up, no tax for schools, Great Prices. Are you doing literature studies too?
