|"What's Out There and Who Cares?"
Oak Park Middle
1800s Louisiana History Map Activity
In 1800 the United States ended at Tennessee and Kentucky. Students are asked to fill in the rest of the country with physical land features based only on what they know - no using books or maps. They then compare what they know to what is really out there. It leads to a great discussion about what Lewis and Clark thought the knew and what the really found.
