What's Inside:

✔Western Expansion

✔Lewis & Clark Expedition

✔The Team Hires Sacagawea

✔The Expedition is a Great Success

With Character Studies where they will learn about:

✔Meriwether Lewis

✔William Clark


✔Thomas Jefferson

Activities Included:

✔Comprehension Questions

✔Map Activities

✔Spotlight on Vocabulary

✔5-page Flip Booklet

✔Mini-booklet with Timeline Activity

✔Vocabulary Posters

✔Vocabulary Flip Flaps



There are three main activities:


Introduce the vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use them as a center activity. These colorful posters make an attractive bulletin board in a snap!

Reading passages:

Students can read the passages about the Lewis and Clark Expedition and complete the organizers. There is additional information about Lewis, Clark, Sacagawea, and Thomas Jefferson. The character studies come in color and black and white for students to color.


Students can complete the map activities, mini-booklet, and a 5-page Flip Book. I usually have students complete the pages of the flip booklet at a station or as a center activity. Then we build the pages of the book one by one. The booklets fit perfectly inside their interactive notebooks or as a stand-alone booklet. You could fold a 12x18 piece of construction paper in half to make a cover for the book.

Note: I have updated and improved this unit following the Marketplace Integrity Guidelines set forth by TpT.
