On this particular quest, Jack and Annie travel to the prairie in the 1800s. During this trip, Jack and Annie encounter a school where they learn about the Westward Expansion of the United States. Right before they are able to leave, a tornado rips through the area, heading straight for the school! Since both kids did their research while living in the prairie, they know that there is a storm cellar underneath the school. They run back and help save the teacher and students while learning about the hardships of living in this area during the Westward Migration.
