Make a Covered Wagon!
Explore a fascinating part of U.S. history with the help of this hands-on arts and crafts activity. Using this four-page worksheet, second-grade students will get to put themselves in the shoes of American pioneers as they make a covered wagon. They will follow the instructions to colour, cut, and glue their wagon together. Then, as a bonus activity, they’ll use pennies, paper clips, or other "cargo" to see how much weight their wagon can hold.
