Product Description
Students will learn the value of exploring through the examples set forth by Lewis and Clark. This unit is mapped out for a 2 week unit for 3rd grade, but can be utilized in many flexible ways to cater to several, if not all, elementary grades. Students will look into map making, travel preparation, journal writing, performance skills, and visual thinking strategies. Students will develop a better understanding of America in the early 19th century and receiving explorer badges for their accomplishments along the way. They will conclude the unit by channeling their inner explorer as they craft their own action plans to explore the world around them.
