Students research the Louisiana Purchase. Groups of students are given the choice of topic for a creative project. Pretending to be Lewis and Clark, students write a report to President Jefferson describing their expedition. Other groups simulate being a member of the Corps of Discovery. They write a report to President Jefferson assessing the leadership of Lewis and Clark.

Lesson Planet has been great. It has showed me how to create different science lessons for the young students in my class.
