The Oregon Trail (video)

On the website How stuff works you will find several short films about life on the Oregon trail and going west.

• Watch one or more of the videos and try to put yourself in the immigrants’ shoes. Would you have been able to do what they did?

• Write a short text using some of the historical facts you are given in the videos about the Oregon trail or life in the West.
