The Schoolchildren's Blizzard

"Surviving the Storm"

The following iAdventure was designed for 3rd and 4th grade students.

The content of this iAdventure focuses on social studies and communication arts.

Jack Johnson is an average 9 year old boy living on the Nebraska prairie in 1888.  He helps his dad raise wheat and cattle. He has daily
chores: fetching water from the well, getting eggs from the hens, and giving the cows hay.  During the growing season, he even goes
to a one-room school house.  He, like many children, walks to and from school. 

On January 12, 1888, Nebraska schoolchildren woke to a warm and sunny winter day.  Little did they know that by 3 o'clock, many of them
would be fighting to stay alive in a bitter blizzard.  Follow Jack Johnson on his journey to survive  "The Schoolchildren's Blizzard".
