Lesson Plan

Description:

In this lesson, students will explore the difficulties faced by the Lewis and Clark expedition as they faced the challenges of portaging around the unexpectedly vast Great Falls of the Missouri River. They will read and discuss the narrative, laced with details from expedition journals, and ask questions about identity, purpose, and motivation. Students will both evaluate the character of Lewis and Clark and understand how they can be diligent in their own lives.
