The Lewis & Clark Expedition: Join the Corps of Discovery to Explore Uncharted Territory
For ages 9 to 12 years. This book focuses on the history of the Lewis and Clark Expedition and also provides some crafts, activities, and open-ended questions for discussion. The text describes the main players in the adventure as well as several of the other members of the company and then follows their journey from St Louis to the Pacific and back. Excerpts from the explorers' journals bring their voices into the story. Printed in two colours, with many cartoons as well as maps, drawings, photographs, and reproductions of period illustrations, the broad pages have an accessible look. Activities include making a model of a keelboat from balsa wood, measuring a zigzag course by dead reckoning, and building a miniature Mandan earth lodge from sticks, clay, and grass. Ages 4 to 6 years.
