Six engaging activity stations will help your students appreciate the experience of the 700-mile/12 week pioneer journey across the mid-western and high desert plains.
Prepare for the Journey: See what pioneers packed for their new lives in the West.
Travel the Trail: Partake in a western prairie walk and learn about the many native plants and animals pioneers encountered in their daily lives.
Setting-up Camp: Students will participate in common chores of children in the 1800s by “hunting” wild buffalo with bean bags, making butter, and grinding coffee.
Native American Life: Learn about some of the cultures and people who already inhabited the West.
Gold Panning: Pan for gold just like the ‘59ers – your students, however, are guaranteed success!
Pioneer Games: After months of hard living on the trail, children were eager to play games once they reached their destination. Students will play games such as "Drop the Handkerchief," "Tug O' War," and test their balancing skills on our stilts!
All Westward Ho! activities are led by Four Mile Historic Park Staff and Volunteers.
