This program will explore the lives of early settlers, their dwellings and living on the frontier.  We will travel the trails and listen to the folksongs as we learn about the variety of people who settled our land. Students will discuss the lyrics in the songs and create a visual that tells a story.

Optional Day 2: Create a short story about one of the characters in the song and include a visual that identifies their livelihood.
