A note from the coach
to other teachers:
This page was designed by 4th and 5th graders for other
elementary students. It is intended to be presented following the
sequence of the main table. Although students will want to go
immediately to the activty link they should be encouraged to
cover the content first. After students have had an opportunity
to learn about the pioneers they will be able to participate in
the activities more successfully.
While researching the topic the students discovered inconsistencies in the source materials. They tried to use the most accurate information available. Please send us your feedback on how the page worked in your class and any ideas or suggestions you may have.
