How We Crossed the West: Adv Lewis & Clark
A beautiful, energetic picture book that not only tells the tale of Lewis & Clark's historical expedition, but does so in their own words, to boot. The highlights from the trip are captured, accompanied by text boxes containing edited, but accurate descriptions_1 taken from Lewis and Clark's journals, and lively, energetic illustrations of the other Corps of Discovery members, Native Americans, animals, and plants they met up with, exciting events, their camps, and forts. After the ecstatic team finally beholds the Pacific at the end of the tale, facts about the journey back home, and some of their amazing accomplishments are featured. An informational and highly entertaining version of the Lewis and Clark expedition. - Jess

Two courses here, at different grade levels. Teaching a Providential view of America's story, and using a Literature approach, these guides break down the study into daily lesson plans, spanning the Vikings to the Civil War (1000 A.D. to 1865). Students keep notebooks of their work throughout the year. Lesson plans include various activities to correlate with the study as students "read" their way through history, consuming some of the best age-appropriate historical literature. Newly revised guides are expanded and now in full color. They also include web links, comprehension questions, character studies and more activities.
