Oregon Trail Math    A wonderful idea for linking mathematics with Social Studies/History, especially grade 3 pioneer times. The journey of pioneers is explored from a number of aspects (e.g., distances traveled, supplied required, amount of money spent). While this site uses empirical units it would have to be modified/adapted to reflect metric units. The site is also geared more to junior students so modifications may be necessary to introduce to the grade 3 and 4.
Grade(s): 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
