It is #MinecraftMonday and today we are venturing into the Wild Wild West. We will dive more about the why behind the movement towards the west later. Right now our lesson is focused on what life was like. First we watched the three videos below.
Then we mapped out the westward movement. As we can see below, there was a lot of time in-between colony settlements and the Gold Rush which was in 1849.
Then we went into Minecraft to look for wild Western towns. We found the two below which we explored.
Matthew and I then went off and spoke about Tombstone, Arizona, Cowboys and much more in detail.
We would love to hear about how our lessons are inspiring you.
