This biography on Meriwether Lewis and William Clark focuses on their leadership of the Corps of Discovery as it traversed the Louisiana Territory to reach the Pacific Ocean. The biography also includes a section on both the positive and negative impacts of the expedition.
The biography includes a series of questions based on the reading.
In using this in my own classroom, students are encouraged to:
1. Number the paragraphs
2. Read the biography
3. Highlight answers in the reading
4. Use complete sentences
5. Identify the paragraph where they find the answer
The answer key demonstrates these steps. Academic and content vocabulary words and definitions are included.
For those seeking distance learning options, the biography can easily be converted to a digital activity using Google Slides.
You can also purchase this biography as part of a Mini-Lesson - a video guide to Ken Burns' documentary on the Corps of Discovery is included. Finally, you can purchase the biography as part of a general series I have posted on Amped Up Learning: Biographies in American History.
