OLS’s Mia Hooten and Myca Banks hit the Oregon Trail dressed in western attire.

Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School(OLS) third graders recently traveled the Oregon Trail – without ever leaving school! In a fun and educational day, the youngsters took a trip back in time to study the life of a pioneer and the hardships endured on the historic trail. The eventful day was incorporated as a special part of their social studies curriculum. They dressed in western-style attire and reenacted a day on the Oregon Trail with activities that included budgeting play money to purchase items for their adventure; writing letters with wax seals; playing a specialized computer game; square dancing; learning how to tool leather; and making and enjoying homemade butter and biscuits.
