For this project, the students are given the following:
Your Mission: You have been hired by Aaron Burr to try to beat Lewis and Clark to the Pacific Ocean. In order to do this, you must start from the same point but choose a different route to follow. Your expedition should be just as comprehensive as theirs, just more efficient. You may work with one partner, but each of you must turn in their own completed sheets.
Students must then complete a series of tasks ranging from mapping their new routes, to choosing their crew, to keeping journals of their journey and discoveries. This packet also includes two maps tracing the Corps of Discovery's routes, one blank map for students to complete, as well as a partial list of supplies brought by the Corps for comparison.
