Ode to the Oregon Trail

"Hall, Laramie, Bridger, and Boise" are more than names to students at Walterville Elementary who had a chance to show what they learned this year during their "Oregon Trail" presentation last Tuesday. The fourth graders in Sheila Garrelts' class brought to life some of the pioneer activities that went on inside frontier forts associated with those names. Class members had all worked hard creating wagon models filled with supplies that reflected historical accuracy. Each student also created Oregon guidebooks to go with their wagons that were filled with lists, art, and detailed historical facts about other places like Independence, The Dalles, and Oregon City.
