The Commission's site, www.lewisandclarkinkansas.org, will keep you informed of all the latest bicentennial events and programs in Kansas. The Journal excerpts for Lewis and Clark's time in Kansas are also available at this site.
The Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation site, www.lewisandclark.org, offers an excellent middle school curriculum manual for $50 plus shipping. One copy of this manual will be presented to each public school district in Kansas in the fall of 2003. The National Park Service provided funding for these manuals.
The Missouri Historical Society's web site on the Lewis and Clark: The National Bicentennial Exhibit provides excellent information about the exhibit and information especially for educators at http://www.lewisandclarkexhibit.org/.
The site www.lewis-clark.org is essential for teachers' own learning, but may not always be easy for younger students to use in doing research.
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory (NWREL) is encouraging teachers to share ideas with each other at www.nwrel.org/teachlewiscandclark/. Also at this site are examples of how 12 teachers around the country "adopted" something from the Journals and describe that topic from today's perspective (e.g. how surveyors work today vs. Clark's approach).
The PBS website, www.pbs.org/lewisandclark/, developed to support the Ken Burns/Dayton Duncan video in late 1997 is still popular with teachers since it contains ready-made lesson plans. The National Council of the Lewis & Clark Bicentennial has designated an Education Liaison to provide assistance with education-related planning. Advice is available at email@example.com or call 800-999-1803.
