Exploration Trails West Unit Package

Exploration Trails West Unit Package

$70.93 $64.00

Your travels conclude with famous folk heroes and a family traveling the trail out west. Both were drawn to the opportunities and the wide-open spaces of the west, all the while measuring the cost and challenge of such a journey. With history and folk tales mixing to tell our story, wisdom comes forth as neighbor helped neighbor, everyone working hard, yet always saving a bit to share with a welcome stranger. Separating detail from the significant, students learn to identify main events as well as to read the intentions of individuals. The journey is completed with a review and reminder of all that has gone before—the successes and struggles, the pain and the joy of lives lived for the purpose of opening our great nation to those millions who would follow from all corners of the earth. Come along as these brave men, women and children guide you along the Paths of Exploration!
