A Troublesome Portage

In this portage instructional activity, students read a 1 page article on a troublesome portage, find the 5 words listed in the paragraph indicated, label each words part of speech and then define each word. Students imagine they are one of the men on the Lewis and Clark expedition and write a journal telling about two of the problems they faced while portaging around the falls. Students reread each paragraph and choose the multiple choice answer that best states the main idea of each paragraph.
