Beyond Reading Activities Cont.
  • Now that you know what it was like to be a

    along the Oregon Trail. Your job is to pick one
    of the following Native American Tribes on the
    following slide, and complete the Native American
    Indian Tribe Study worksheet. You will use this
    information to write a journal entry from the
    point of view of a Native American living in the
    1800s along the Oregon Trail. You will then
    read this journal entry to the members of your
    wagon train. Good luck!

Teacher Notes
  • Students need teacher to model how to complete
    the KTWL chart and the Venn Diagram. Make sure to
    give the students one or two examples of how to
    fill out the Venn Diagram based on the
    information from the text.
  • You may want to decide who your students are
    going to be partners with for this activity to
    avoid future problems.
  • Go to your local library or school library and
    find some read aloud texts about Native Americans
    to give your students some background knowledge
    about what it was like to be a Native American in
    the west during the 1800s.
