.Oregon Trail Field Trip


By Janice Johnson-Palmer, Teacher


Imagine traveling in a wagon on the Oregon Trail and saying this,

"Was disturbed last night by the cry of a panther, it was near our camp as we heard it distinctly. Its cry resembles in sound a person in distress."

-Esther McMillan Hanna, May 19, 1852

Many of you study the Oregon Trail as part of the Westward migration of people across the United States. This field trip takes you to background information sites for individual or class work as well as providing three online projects for you to join.
