What do we think of when we think of pioneers?
They learned to do without things, they built new communities wherever they settled, they had to endure punishing weather, sudden illnesses, unforeseen accidents, and shortages of food. More than any other factor, pioneers believed there was a better life where they were headed.
This box explores the stories of Nevada pioneers, and the lives they built in strange and new places, far from the places they were born. It contains a wealth of artifacts that helps students gain a better understanding as to what every day life might have been like, and includes books, games and activities to help them explore more. Aimed at 4th grade students, this can easily be adapted for younger or older students.
