Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

- Test your skills at building honest relationships with those whose ways differ from yours.<BR>- Decide what you see as the achievements, the contradictions, and the legacy of this expedition.<BR>- Make history real! Build a replica of the keelboat, carve an Indian dugout canoe, and build a Mandan bullboat; consider how you might have negotiated the Louisiana Purchase; construct a Mandan earth lodge; conduct a land survey; be a naturalist as Lewis was; measure distances by dead reckoning; make a pair of leather moccasins to wear; debate who owns the earth.<BR>- Meet the people! Along with Lewis and Clark, meet the other Corps members; decide why Lewis named Clark an equal partner; read original journal entries to see and hear with their eyes and ears; evaluate Sacagawea's role; decide how you would have treated York upon the expedition's end; meet Cameahwait of the Shoshones and Sheheke Shoat of the Mandans.<BR>- Think about ... Why this expedition is considered a turning point in U.S. history; how life changed from this time forward for the Indians; Jefferson's method of educating Lewis; how people behave when survival depends upon one another; what makes a good leader and a good team player.
