A voyage of discovery.....

 ISocial Studies this week, we'll be studying the Lewis and Clark expedition, commissioned by President Jefferson to explore the newly acquired Louisiana Purchase and to search for a northwest passage to the sea.  The students will be tracing the route of Lewis and Clark's perilous journey on a United States map. They will be reading an account of the expedition as seen from the viewpoint of Meriwether Lewis' dog (from the children's book Seaman's Journal.) They will also be viewing a fascinating video about Sacajawea of the Shoshone tribe, who played an instrumental role as the expedition's interpreter and guide!
