The Oregon Trail

The Oregon Trail


This site was created by the two educators responsible for the PBS award-winning documentary of the same name. It is designed specifically for both home-schoolers and teachers. Besides the trove of materials about the Oregon Trail it also offers a very comprehensive teaching guide, which even includes a Glossary—a truly worthwhile site.
