Product Description
This is a writing assignment designed to get the students into the shoes of the explorers of the Louisiana Purchase. The students are asked to pretend that they are members of the Corps of Discovery or Zebulon Pike's expedition into the west. The Students are expected to write three journal entries fulfilling Thomas Jefferson's three expectations of the expeditions:

1. Explore the Louisiana purchase
2. Establish positive relations with the Native Americans
3. Describe landscape, plants and animals

Works great alongside my Jefferson Era Powerpoint!
