PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Assignment Brief:

By yourself or with a partner, create a historical journal of Lewis and Clark’s explorations. Partners share the grade that the assignment receives. Use a variety of sources. Assume the historical character of either Lewis or Clark. Write in the first person and in the present tense. Pages should be about two to three paragraphs in length (long sentences, please), be written by hand (do not use a computer) and in black ink (refer to pp. 60-63, Book 4). Your journal should have a cover and should look like it’s 200 years old. You will also maintain a Video/Source Log.

Example from journal assignment:

Page 3 Draw or include a picture of both Lewis and Clark.
(Note: Drawn illustrations for all entries, in general, receive higher credit)
(Note: You can choose to combine a written and illustrative page so that the drawing is embedded in the text).

Page 4
* at least 2 paragraphs “Jefferson and the Louisiana Purchase”—write page about meeting President Jefferson, your knowledge of his achievements, your knowledge of the Louisiana Purchase, and his asking you to explore the new territory. Please do not copy.
