The study of pioneers has always fascinated me. As a teacher of twenty-five years, I look forward to the time of year when we work on a unit about pioneers. It can be geared up or down depending on the grade level. Children love to learn about the toys, food and travel of children long ago.

Teaching About the Pioneers

The study of pioneer life is fascinating for even the youngest children. Why? Because it is easy to make it relevant to them. Children can compare their everyday lives with the lives of pioneer children. What kinds of toys did the pioneer children have? What chores did they do? Did they play games? How often did they take a bath? What kind of food did they eat? Was it fun to travel in a covered wagon?thumbnail-1.aspx

Our expert Bright Hub writers have included everything you need to do a unit about pioneers. For cross-curriculum lessons, we have even included WebQuests and suggestions for books to use, by Laura Ingalls Wilder for example. The unit will be so complete that even the teacher might learn something!
