Cherokee Trail of Tears Lessons, Activities, Materials and Videos

I have spent the last two weeks researching, reviewing, and gathering these important lessons and activities about the Cherokee Trail of Tears removal, which occurred in the late 1830’s, from their original homelands east of the Mississippi to Oklahoma. I have also gathered and put together all of supporting documents, images and videos, so that everything here is quickly accessible for viewing and downloading. Many of these documents are no longer easily found online, as I had to look in archives and other locations to get them together. I hope this helps teach and convey the important topics and subject matter that our students need to learn about this tragic event in our U.S. history. Files are in pdf format unless specified otherwise.
