Students put themselves in the shoes of William Clark on his 34th birthday, half way through exploring the nation and struggling with the challenges of the journey. The scene is set for students to write a first-person narrative, consider the five senses that would be experienced on the journey, and then answer questions and peer review each other's stories. This is an involving, interesting, and dynamic activity that can incorporate technology to find realistic details that William Clark's expedition would have been likely to encounter on the journey.
