Cycle 3 Week 6



Resources for Discussing Lewis & Clark and Louisana Purchase

Draw Write Now, Vol 5 has instructions on drawing the US map,

sectioned into early colonies, Louisiana purchase and western territories.

  • Drawing the map helped my girls see how the United States doubled in size, only 27 years after it began.
  • We also identified the Mississippi River and mountain ranges – these were natural borders.
  • We read Lewis and Clark: A Prairie Dog for a President.  This led to natural discussions of the different animals in the prairie.
  • We have been reading through the Laura Ingalls Wilder Little House on the Prairie books as well.
  • We made a few connections – about Westerward Exploration.
