The Second Grade formed a Wagon Train to head west under the direction of Wagon master Ms. Gomba.
Each pioneer had an identity, a goal, and a wagon.
For instance, some pioneers were married, but others were single.
Some of the pioneers wanted to get to Washington State, but others were headed only as far as Utah.
Before the Wagon Train set out, they had to share their stories and be introduced to each other.
After each day of travel, they circled their wagons and set up camp, with a campfire in the center.
Everyone enjoyed the frontier life, with its storytelling and coffee in the evenings.
They all pitched in to help with chores.
They cooked up hearty stews.
They had to patrol the camp perimeter, wary of attacks from Native Americans
There was an attack! Several brave pioneers were wounded!
Luckily, there were enough uninjured pioneers to care for the wounded!
