Reviewer Comments:

This resource is a collection of materials that can be used in the classroom when studying Lewis and Clark.  The collection includes lesson plans, documents, and images.  One of the highlights is an interactive story in which students read a story about the Lewis and Clark and are able to make choices about challenges faced throughout their expedition.  The materials cover a range of topics and skills including scarcity, geography, and writing.  In addition to the pre-made lessons, a teacher may want to create a primary document analysis activity.  Teachers can use lesson plans as is or may want to adapt to increase accessibility based on student make-up and ability level.
