Lewis & Clark Trading Post
Lewis and Clark wanted to open up more of North America to trade. Trade was vital to the local peoples at this time. Learn about the history of the trading post; then, set up a classroom trading post for your students to "trade" their goods and services. This creative activity will encourage students to think about the inherent value of something, as opposed to the monetary value.
