Just as Lewis
and Clark presented gifts to people they met, you too will pass
on a "small" gift to the next school you mail the project
too. We do not expect this gift to be of any great monetary value
but instead something to represent your school (such as a bumpersticker,
letter from your class, a piece of artwork you created during
the project, etc etc.)
day of the project will have a different theme:
Day One: Getting to Know Lewis and Clark &
Why They Choose to Explore New Territory
Day Two: Mapping Out Your School
Day Three: Meeting New People, Sacagawea, &
Day Four: Becoming A Naturalist
Day Five: The Corps of Discovery and Supplies
or Indians on the Trail (you choose)
OF PROJECT -- Please notice that we are giving every
class one week of backpack time and providing ONE WEEK leeway
of travel time. You will be provided with a label to mail your
package to the next school (you pay for postage) and we ask that
you don't keep your package longer than one full week. Thank you!!
