Other highlights of the week included starting a new read aloud picture story book about pioneers on the Oregon Trail. As this was how settlers ended up in the Tahoe area, it fits in well with our history unit. Students compared and contrasted how kids used to grow up long ago in colonial America, as well as during the westward expansion time. They were surprised to learn that, long ago in the 1700's, children weren't able to attend school unless their parents were very wealthy, and if parents didn't have an education, their children were likely to also not receive an education. What an amazing gift we have with free education for ALL students today, regardless of socioeconomic status!
