    Does anyone have any good, hands-on ideas for teaching about Lewis & Clark? My textbook is almost worthless on this topic, so I am trying to put together a unit from scratch. Thanks in advance!

    Scholastic has a whole on-line unit on Lewis and Clark.

    I used to live in Salmon, ID which interestingly enough is the birthplace of Sacajawea. They have a Center there and they might provide you with resources in regards to Lewis & Clark but more especially to the brave young lady that got them there.

    When I taught history, the kids role-played the Schoolhouse Rock song, "Elbow Room." After learning that song, the kids never forgot who Lewis, Clark, and Sacagawea were.
