Combine Lewis and Clark with the RACES Writing Strategy

Do you need resources to teach about the Lewis and Clark Expedition? We’ve got the background and the resources you need to make that happen!

The Lewis and Clark expedition was a military expedition led by Captain Meriwether Lewis and Lieutenant William Clark to explore the Louisiana Purchase and the Pacific Northwest. The expedition was a significant chapter in the history of American exploration.

This worksheet integrates Social Studies and writing concepts. Students will read a short passage covering the basics of the Lewis and Clark Expedition into the American West. They will then use our RACES Writing Strategy Graphic organizer to plan and rough draft their constructed response to the question, “How did Lewis and Clark change the United States?”
