Crossing the Plains, 1865

Good morning,
   Lots of fun last week with Lewis and Clark. You got to practice finding assumptions and statements about nature. Let's try it again and take it a step further.
   About 60 years after Lewis and Clark a teenage girl named Sarah crossed the plains with her family in a wagon train headed for Montana.  She kept a diary. 
  1. As you read keep looking for ASSUMPTIONS and evidence of NATURE.
  2. When you are done highlighting paste the URL in your English Journal.
  3. Then copy one of your assumptions into your EJ also.
  4. EXPLAIN why you think the part you copied is an assumption.
Awesome Highlighter
