Using this journal, students become a member of the Corps of Discovery! Students will document their journey across the Louisiana Territory by creating and writing detailed journal entries about their adventure. This activity is an excellent way to help students understand exactly how difficult and remarkable their journey was to complete.
Students pretend to be a member of the Corps while writing in the first person and in the present tense. My student entries end up being about two to three paragraphs in length.
This journal can be used independently or paired with my "What was the Lewis and Clark Expedition?" unit.
