Covered Wagons, 5th Grade

Last year, I needed to come up with a lesson about pioneers. This is what I came up with.

This is a little on the crafty side, but I did let the students use their creativity to add decorations to these wagons.

These were made out of milk cartons. We cut the milk carton in half and painted them brown. The wagon cover was just a piece of paper sliped in. Wheels were cut out of poster board.

I am aware that these are not historically accurate, since pioneer wagons were not this colorful. However, I figured it was okay since pioneer wagons were also not made of milk cartons. :)

I really do think these turned out cool.
