Explain to students that they will be developing and then playing their very own classroom size
game. They will be learning about the hazards encountered by people traveling the Natchez Trace during the 1800’s. This is an excellent fun review of a study of the old-southwest Mississippi territory history in 1700-1800, especially concerning the Natchez Trace Parkway. Background
Explain to the students that it took much longer for early visitors to the Natchez Trace (animals, American Indians, boatmen, etc.) to travel from Natchez to Nashville. Along the way they encountered many hazards. Brainstorm and review concepts before the students complete the assignment sheets.
