On the Trail to California Below are a few student samples for the "On the Trail to California" project. Students need to list items they would take with them if they were traveling to California from the east coast in the 1850s. Of course, they should be items available at the time (no cell phones or laptops!).
Students are working with a partner. The grade for both students will be based on the single project they turn in.
