Lewis, Clark and the Corps of Discovery began their westward expedition on May 14, 1804. The main objective of the expedition was to find an easy water route across the newly acquired Louisiana Purchase to the Pacific Ocean. A study of Lewis and Clark's travels will reveal that, even though the main objective was not accomplished, many valuable contributions were made along the way.
There are many 'ready-made' webquests that homeschoolers can use. Most have been created for the classroom, but can be easily adjusted for homeschool study. In my article: U.S.History webquests: Lewis and Clark I've linked to four separate webquests. If you would like to add a Lewis and Clark webquest to your homeschooling lesson plans, browse through these ready-made quests.. Also, I've included a bonus "fun" 2 page puzzle/activity sheets within the article.
