Oregon Bound!!!


 As you are planning your family and getting ready to head west to Oregon, what are some good things that could happen to your family and what are some bad things that could happen to your family.  Please be realistic and do not get silly. Write in complete sentences at least three bad things that could happen and write at least three good things that could happen on the 2,000 mile trail.  Be sure to tell why they are good or bad.  I do not just want a list!!!

  4. A bad thing is that you could have a child die when it is born.
    Another bad thing that could happen is not making it all the way to Oregon.
    Another bad thing that could happen was you could get stuck in a snow storm. A good thing that could happen was having a baby. Another good thing that could happen was making it all the way too Oregon. Another good thing that could happen was to make it too Oregon with out anyone dying.

  5. THE BAD THINGS
    • You might get cholera that is bad because if you get cholera you can feel good in the morning and be dead by noon!!!
    • You might lose your wagon in a river that is really bad because you will have to ride with other people in there wagon and you'll have lost all your food!!!
    • You might get bit by a rattlesnake and that is bad by two reasons #1 The rattlesnakes could be as thick as a mans knee. #2 back then they didn't have rattlesnake bite medicine.

    THE GOOD THINGS
    • If nobody dies in your family that is good because lots of people died on the organ trail.
    • If you made it to organ you would have cheap or free fertile land.
    • trading with Indians and learning about new cultures.

  6. All the bad things that could happen to you on Oregon trail would be a lot. The Oregon trail was very dangerous and many bad things could happen to you. #1 your family could get cholera and die.#2 If the weather is bad and muddy your wagon could get stuck and you would have to spend days digging it out.#3 In dangerous river crossings you would have to have your wagon float on a raft. If that raft tipped over your wagon and belongings would be lost. All the good things that can happen;you really had to be lucky to have them happen to you.#1 Your family could make it safe to the Oregon country.#2 If you got through the whole trip without getting sick. #3 Going through the trip without going hungry,getting sick,running out of something and having any accidents.

  7. A good thing that could happen is that no one dies.Another good thing is that no ones wagon floats away in the river.Another good thing would be if no one had a baby, which would slow us down. A bad thing that could happen is that someone could get cholera and die. Also someone could get bitten by a rattlesnake. The last bad thing that could happen is we run out of food.

  8. All the bad thing that can happen to your family

    You could get stuck in mud if you leave to early. You can die by cholera because you drank dirty water. Or you could go across a river covered with ice and the ice cracks. You can die from being dehydrated from lack of water.

    The good things that can happen

    You made it to Oregon country. Your hole family survived. You have a babby and it survived. No one got hurt or sick on the way.

  9. It was very dangerous on the long 2,000 mile immigration west.

    Some of those bad things are: Animals hate to get water in there ears. If it happens while floating the covered wagon down a stream, your animal may go wild and throw you off, and you can drowned. 2) We all know dirty water leaves to cholera. 3) you can get severely bit by a rattle snake as big as a mans knee!

    All of the good things!: 1) No one got sick or hurt. 2) No wagons broke down. 3) You could have a baby!!

  12. Two good things are we will get to Oregon and will make it before the winter. Also most of my kids will survive. The bad thing is a couple of my kids will die. The kids that survive get cholera still. Another thing is we have to fix our wagon beacuse it broke.

  14. One of the things that would be bad would be your cattle would die of exhaustion in the middle of a lake. Another bad thing would be I died from cholera. It is dangerous for me and my family on the trail because of diseases and Native Americans. The good things were that we were going to Oregon to get a better life with land and space for my family. Another thing that is good will be if we all survive and don't get cholera.

  18. A few bad things that could happen are... Your wagon could sink while crossing a river. Indians could come attack you while you are on the trail and you could get lost.
    A few good things that could happen are....No one will get sick or hurt. You make it to Oregon before the first snowfall. You have a new baby that is healthy and does not die.

  19. My family is going on the Oregon trail, and I am very worried and excited at the same time. Some bad things that could happen are you could be going on a walk and you wander of too far and you get lost and the wagon train goes on with out you. Or your wagon could break down on the bumpy path or your family could get attacked by mean Indians. Some good things that could happen are you could have a baby. Or no one gets lost or sick. The best thing is that everybody gets to Oregon safe and sound and you get great land and start a new life!!!
