Corps of Discovery: Voyaging with Lewis and Clark. Grade 8 Lesson. Schools of California Online Resources for Education (SCORE): Connecting California's Classrooms to the World.
In this lesson, students role-play supporting members of the original Lewis and Clark expedition of the Louisiana Territory. Students research the expedition and create journals of their journey. The journals are meant to be historically accurate, and students will include items such as maps, personal written entries, illustrations, and reflections on the leaders of the expedition. Students are provided with background information, detailed instructions, and on-line resources. The teacher's notes describe the unit's purpose, explain the application of history/social science and language arts standards, and suggest teaching strategies. (BB)
