Lewis and Clark on the Nature Trail
Self-Guided tour — Kansas Museum of History, Topeka
Grades — 4th-6th
In 1804 Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery embarked on an unprecedented exploration of western lands on their journey to the Pacific Ocean. In your classroom, your students will read about their journey using primary and secondary source materials. At the Kansas Museum of History and State Archives, they will explore our nature trail using exploration tools (we provide) and a journal worksheet. When they return to school they will write their own journal entry about their experience.
