This PowerPoint presentation discusses some background information about Washington, D.C., the reasons and specifics for the Louisiana Purchase, and the exploration of the Louisiana Territory.
Lewis and Clark
Corps of Discovery
** This PowerPoint also includes an activity to create a job advertisement for people to join Lewis and Clark for the Corps of Discovery. I used it to help students understand qualities people should possess for different jobs and requirements that are needed for a variety of jobs. It can be used as a ticket out of the door or a fun extension to the material learned.
