The potential for classroom instruction provided by the Louisiana Purchase is as wide as the geography of the region itself. Woven into the history of the Purchase are the histories of whole nations; an equivocal mix of lands, languages, governments and goals. Below we feature a variety of age-appropriate lesson plans and classroom activities designed to utilize the vast collection of digital materials produced for this project.
Each lesson plan is available in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). Obtain a free copy of the Adobe Acrobat Reader if necessary, then click the link to view.
