Lewis and Clark : organized, as technology-rich as you need it to be, integrating social studies, science, technology, research, reading, writing, speaking, listening, and even art.
This flexible but comprehensive unit provides many options for implementation, with activities ranging from:
• online mini-simulation
• interacting with maps and a book
• creating comic strips
• exploring primary documents created by members of the Expedition
• complete journey simulation/journaling activity with Common Core correlation
• campfire sharing experience as a culminating activity
The unit is structured in such a way that various components can be chosen or discarded without creating an organizational nightmare. There are even approximate times required for the various activities.

This unit was specifically designed for 5th grade, then later used for a 5th grade gifted class. With minor adjustments, it is appropriate for 5th through 7th grades.
