Thursday/

Friday:           Extra! Extra!  Read All About It!  Write an article for a newspaper.

Using the information that you have read and heard in class, write about some aspect of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.  You could write about preparing for the journey.  You could write what it was like to see Charles Floyd die.  You could write about the animal life encountered.  You could write your story about how the Indians lived. Remember at this time most Americans lived within 50 miles of the Atlantic Ocean.  You want to bring to life the sights, sounds or experiences of the Expedition.  Write the article as if you were a reporter travelling with the Corp or a participant of the Corp.  You may include actual quotes from the journals written on the expedition.

 

The information below will help you think about what to include so the article is interesting.  4th Graders may write one paragraph.  5th and 6th Graders should have a minimum of three paragraphs.

                       

Formula for a Well-Written News Article

  1. First paragraph
    Include who, what, when, where and/or why in the first few sentence(s). Try to hook the reader by beginning with a funny, clever, or surprising statement. Go for variety. Try beginning your article with a question or a provocative statement.
  2. Second/Third/Fourth paragraphs
    Give the reader the details. Include one or two quotes from people you interviewed (or ones you created). Write in the third person (he, she, it, they). Be objective — never state your opinion. Use quotes to express others’ opinions!
  3. Last paragraph
    Wrap it up somehow (don’t leave the reader hanging. Please don’t say….”In conclusion” or “To finish…” (yawn!) Try ending with a quote or a catchy phrase.

 

  • Use active words (verbs that show what’s really happening.)
  • Write down quotes!
  • Tell the really interesting info first!

Tuesday:        The Lewis and Clark Expedition met many different Indian tribes while exploring the Louisiana Purchase.  Research the Indian tribe listed below.  You may use the website www.pbs.org/lewisandclark/native/index.html or other information to learn about your tribe. If you use the PBS website it is very easy to click on the tribe that you are researching.  Make a poster about your tribe. Include information about where the Indians lived, shelter, food, and relations between the tribe and the Corp of Discovery. You might want to also google the name of your tribe with different topics like teepees, clothing, images to find pictures that you can download or use as a guide to drawing your own. Come prepared Wednesday to show your poster and tell about your Indian tribe.
