Bundle Description
There is no better way to discuss America's westward expansion than with the story of the Corps of Discovery. Charged by Thomas Jefferson to explore the newly-acquired Louisiana Territory, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark led 58 men, a Shoshone woman, and a Newfoundland dog on a journey to the Pacific Ocean and back. The expedition opened the way for America's settlement of the west -- and, unfortunately, marked the beginning of the end for the Native American tribes already occupying that territory.

This resource includes a 56-question video guide to accompany the Ken Burns' documentary on the Corps of Discovery. The video guide is divided into two section, each shown over a two-day period, and focuses on those sections instrumental to the story of Lewis and Clark.

The resource also includes three biographies on individuals related to the Corps of Discovery: Thomas Jefferson, who authorized the expedition, Lewis and Clark, who captained the expedition, and Sacagawea, who served as both guide and translator.

In completing the biographies, 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.
