This was a project to wrap up the Unit on Westward movement. The kids re-created the homesteads that were won in the Great Land Rush. they have spent many weeks traveling the westward trails and making choices that affect them in positive and negative ways. Each Students Homestead was quite different and they all seemed to have a good time doing it. The room smelled very sweet secondary to all the cans of frosting. These Hands on Projects really help to bring home the message. It is unfortunate that more activities like this are not available.
