Role play the journey of an American pioneer moving west and create a pastel drawing of your new settlement.
Engage in a role play about life in North America from 1890 to 1930. Join classmates to form a family and select a town in which you live. Choose an occupation (farmer, general store owner, blacksmith, laborer). Act out your occupation and life in that town. Then imagine what happens to your family when obstacles to your economic survival occur (drought, competition, unemployment). Identify why your family chooses to move West: land, natural resources such as gold, and independence.
Refer to a map. Find out what modes of transportation were available from 1890 to 1930 to move West from your town. Identify necessary items for travel and resettling in a new place.
With your family, use Crayola® Colored Pencils to write about your journey, describing your reasons for moving, along the way, and what you expect to find and do in your new location.
Draw how you imagine the new area looked at the turn of the 20th century with Crayola Oil Pastels. Blend pastels by rubbing with a fingertip or paper towel. Add details by using pastel over pastel.
