Storyboard Text

  • Excuse me but I would like to know why you are traveling West on the Oregon Trail.
  • We  would like to travel West to create new settlements and expand our land.
  • Yes, we are very excited to be going on this trip!
  • For this trip we will be taking a wagon with an oxen to hold all of our supplies.
  • We will be walking alongside the wagon because we need the whole wagon to hold our supplies.
  • One obstacle many pioneers faced were attacks from Native Americans. In the picture above Timmy is being attacked by a Native American while the rest of his family ran and left without him.
  • AAAAAA! Help me!
  • Timmy has died from Native American Attack.
  • You could have helped me, but instead you left and saved yourselfs.
  • Were Sorry! The rest of us needed to make it out alive.
  • Another obstacle they faced were sicknesses and diseases.  Many had to be left behind, this family rested a while. In this case resting did not help, John has died from sickness. Cora and Ellie will have to venger out in harsh conditions on their own.
  • I think I'm very sick Cora and we should stay here and rest before something bad happens.
  • I also think we should rest a little, but we might have to take this journey by ourselves, Elli. 
  • Cora and Elli have not had another harsh obstacle on their way to Oregon. They have passed all obstacles and are very proud of themselves for making it to Oregon and completing their manifest destiny.
  • Yes mother, I am very proud of us and very happy that we completed our manifest destiny to move to the West.
  • Elli, we finally made it to Oregon and have started to create our new settlement.
