Oregon Trail Map

I wanted to share pictures from this weeks project for the Oregon Trail. We made a relief map of the western states using salt dough. Then MB painted the map showing the different habitats that the pioneers moved through. It turned out better than I imagined. We had a lot of fun reading about the trail itself while we worked on this project.

The project was really very easy. I am so glad that I went ahead with it even though I had my doubts about how successful it would be.
