Twenty-one activities bring to life the Native American tribes they encountered, the plants and animals they discovered, and the camping and navigating techniques they used. A glossary of terms and listings of Lewis and Clark sites, museums, and related websites round out this comprehensive activity book.
Twenty-one activities explore how Impressionist artists lived, painted, and thrilled to the vibrant life of Paris at the approach of the 20th century. Illustrations.
