Lewis and Clark Resources

LEWIS & CLARK--CORPS OF DISCOVERY

To begin you are going to research online.  Go to   http://www.pbs.org/lewisandclark/

When you get to the website, go to the interactive map link.

Step 1.  Click the Interactive Trail Map, then click on the different states, to find out more about the expedition go to the “From the Lewis and Clark Journals” link in the box.  Get the details for 4-5 days.  Choose entries that provides a lot of detail. What is the date?  Where were they?  What did the members of the expedition do that day?  Who did they meet?  Did they have difficulties?  You should have detailed notes in your own words.

For additional research on the topic, go to www.lewis-clark.org.   Use the link to Journal Excerpts.

You may also use www.nationalgeographic.com/lewisandclark/ click on Begin Journey.

Step 2.  Use the www.lewis-clark.org site to research animals or plants that the expedition discovered.    Click on the link to Natural History.  Take notes about the animals or plants.

Step 3.  Draw a map of the US or use the map template handout.  Draw both routes of Lewis and Clark’s journey. Use http://www.pbs.org/lewisandclark/   Identify, name, and label the following: St. Louis, Fort Clatsop, the Rockies, the Mississippi River, the Missouri River, the Yellowstone River, Oregon Country, and Spanish territory. Later you will need to use your textbook pages 316 & 318 to add labels for Fort Clatsop, Fort Mandan, and the Columbia River. Using two different colors show on the map the both the Journey West and the Return Trip routes (Lewis and Clark take separate routes for part of the return trip).
