Following the Oregon Trail
Students in Kate Kennedy's Foundations U.S. History class learned about history in a novel way recently by playing a card game based on a vintage 1970s computer game.
Oregon Trail is a cooperative game where at least one member of the wagon has to make it to Oregon in order to win. Students died of drowning, snake bites, cholera, and of course, dysentery. No wagons made it intact to Oregon, but everyone had fun!
Thanks for sharing, Mrs. Kennedy.
