I figured out how to add pages to the blog, but I can't figure out how to allow comments on the other pages (?).  This is definitely holding the wagon train up!  Stay tuned.

Pioneer Family Names Above In Red

Beginning March 14, our crew will begin a simulation about pioneer travel from Independence, Missouri to the unorganized territory of what would become Minnesota.  The "pioneer children" will be blogging about their journey.  This past week we have visited two settler cabins and a prairie schooner.  The students picked 1840 Victorian names and selected a family name.  They will document their journey in a digital scrapbook and add their journal entries about the trials and successes they encounter on this blog. Please feel free to follow along and give them feedback.  We look forward to "seeing you" along the trail.
