The Lewis and Clark Expedition: A Multiple-Choice Quiz and Study Guide for Students and Homeschoolers
Canine Explorer Traveling With Lewis and Clark
Opening the American West
- The true spirit behind the exploration of the Western part of America was President Thomas Jefferson. But, he was the President of the United States and not an explorer. Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark were just the explorers that a visionary President needed for an 8,000-mile-long journey that would take them three years to complete.
- They explored the endless possibilities of the journey with detailed documentation every step of the way. This quiz is designed to help you learn about the Lewis and Clark Expedition, as well as allow you to discover how much of the information you retained from school.
- High school students studying Lewis and Clark should find this useful, and I hope everyone enjoys the trip across the American West with the two men, along with their "Corps of Discovery".
- In the words of President Jefferson to Captain Lewis: "The Object of your mission is to explore the Missouri river & such principal stream of it as by it's course and communication with the waters of the Pacific ocean, whether the Columbia, Oregon, Colorado or any other river may offer the most direct & practicable water communication across this continent for the purpose of commerce."
- When the president wrote those words he could not possibly have imagined the wealth of discoveries that were to be made on the expedition. In the end, Lewis and Clark and their "Corps of Discovery" had written the first scientific discovery of 178 plants and 122 animals.
- ...and much, much more.
