Written as a companion to Holling C. Holling's Tree in the Trail, this guided study will introduce us to the people, places, history and culture –particularly of the Great Plains and Santa Fe Trail area–as a cottonwood tree is passed along the way. Including map work, words to know and narration prompts, this guide is targeted for ages 9-12.


This guide includes 3 different approaches to mapping, with one approach utilizing a printable outline map contained within this PDF file. 


The contents of this guide will also be included in Year Five: The Complete Guide as well as all four program lesson guides for Lower School A [Years 5-6].
