Frontier: Timelines

Timelines

Create a timeline for the Lewis and Clark Expedition using illustrations and/or words. Consult the following websites as resources:

Have students (individually, in pairs, or in small groups) complete timelines for either the fur trading forts and/or the military forts in North Dakota.

Have students (individually, in pairs, or in small groups) write a significant event on an index card relating to the frontier era of North Dakota or to the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Take turns placing the cards in the correct sequential order. Students creating the timeline should create an answer sheet to check for understanding of the students participating.
