US History Art Project in LEGO: Trail of Tears

One of our curriculum designers, Ben Pfister, recently did a unique US History Art project with a group of his students.  It ended up being one of his favorite History Art Projects his students have ever done.

“We studied the Trail of Tears, where in 1838, over 15,000 Cherokee were forced to relocate their homes in the Southeast and trek over 1,000 miles to current-day Oklahoma.

We placed over 5,000 1×1 bricks along a path to commemorate the over 5,000 Cherokee men, women and children who died on the Trail of Tears.”
