Storyboard Text

  • We have been wheat farmers for as long as I can remember.
  • You should go to Washington! We are selling a lot of land there!
  • Can I bring my whole family?
  • How are we going to cross this river with all of our stuff and grandma?
  • Someone will be carrying me across!
  • My name is Macie and I am 10 years old. My family and I have always been farmers, we farm wheat in Iowa.
  • If I eat all of these will my dad notice?
  • One day my dad heard about the rich resources from a pamphlet that the Great Northern Railroad was passing out. They were selling land next to the new tracks in the new state of Washington!
  • Grandma likes the tractor so much she likes to work in it!
  • My dad thought that this land in Washington sounded like a new start for our family. He decided we should move our family there and start over. So we said goodbye, packed up everything and headed out on the Oregon Trail.
  • Woah, these strawberries from the far away place of Washington are awesome!
  • Once we arrived in Washington we found some farmland and began farming again. My dad decided to switch to strawberries since they grow so well here.
  • When we were in Iowa we had one of these too but it is amazing how much easier the new invention of the tractor makes life!
  • Another big change to farming since I was born has been the railroad. Now we bring our goods to the railroad and they can be shipped and eaten all over the country!
