I have always been fascinated with the Oregon Trail and Sacagawea, the Gold Rush. It really is a piece of history that I love. So these Westward Expansion themed printables have been so fun for me to create. The clipart from EduClips is SUPER CUTE, which helps a ton! I often wonder what it would have been like to travel the Oregon Trail or live during the California Gold Rush.
These writing activities are a fun way to get kids dreaming and wondering about what life would have been like on the Trail and during the Gold Rush!
