You will be creating parallel journals containing information about your trip from  Independence, Missouri to Oregon City, Oregon during the early migration on the Oregon Trail.

You will be seperated into groups. You and your group members will become a family.

 Your group must decide who plays what role and their ages. Your family must have at least a mother and father.

Write in your journal as if your relatives in the year 2007 will have a good idea about what it was like on the Oregon Trail.
