This product contains a series of three biographies on individuals associated with the Corps of Discovery.
The first biography traces the life of Thomas Jefferson, including his role in both the formation of political parties in the United States and the purchase of the Louisiana Territory in 1803.
The second biography focuses on the leadership of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark as they led the Corps of Discovery across the Louisiana Territory to the Pacific Ocean in 1804-05.
The third biography addresses the role the Shoshone woman Sacagawea played in leading the Corps of Discovery to the Pacific.
Each biography also includes a series of questions based on the reading.
In using this in my own class room, students are encouraged to:
1. Number the paragraphs
2. Read the biography
3. Highlight answers in the reading
4. Use complete sentences.
The answer key demonstrates these steps.
Purchased separately, the biographies would total $6.75; I am offering them as a bundle for $6.00. I am sure you will find these a valuable addition to your curriculum.
You can also purchase these biographies as part of a general series I have posted on TpT: Biographies in American History
