Lewis and Clark Expedition: Two Viewpoints

Students will analyze four documents from the National Archives online library and determine what the documents meant for their selected group of people. The link to the activity is found here:

"Nobel Prize" Nomination Letter

Students today analyzed the accomplishments of George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, and John Adams and nominated one of these men for a Nobel Prize in a persuasive writing activity today in class. To prepare for this activity we read about and discussed these men and familiarized ourselves with the Nobel Organization--even watching a video clip from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, given in 1955.
