Assessment items:
More than 200 years ago, in 1804, two explorers made an important journey. They were

named Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. Today, people know a lot about the places they

visited, but 200 years ago there were no maps of that part of the United States. They would travel

by boat most of the way and they would make the first maps of that part of our country. They

were going to trace where a great river went. The river they were mapping is a very big one

called the Missouri River. They wanted to find out where it went. They hoped it would take them

to the ocean. (American explorers, 2005)
