O'Connell, Libby Haight; Maxwell, Louise P.; Blake, Kevin
As the United States approaches the bicentennial of the Meriwether Lewis and William Clark expedition, it is critical to embark on a voyage of recovery to help restore the Missouri River to some of its original prominence and splendor. The mission of the Missouri River Project is to emphasize the role of the Missouri River in the physical development of the North American continent and to explore its impact upon the lives of Native Americans and subsequent settlers. The wide variety of materials and ideas presented in this teacher's manual are designed to help teachers integrate the Missouri River into their curricula, covering mathematics, science, history, and language arts. Activities reinforce skills in chronological thinking, historical comprehension, historical analysis and interpretation, historical research, and historical issues analysis and decision making. Following an introduction, the manual is divided into these grade-level sections: Grades 4-5 (five lessons); Grades 6-8 (three lessons); and Grades 9-12 (three lessons). Cites several primary sources and other resources. (BT)
