Last Fall I shared my review of George Washington Carver. We really learned so much from that DVD because we watched it several times. I plan to pull that DVD back out again to enjoy on Jan. 5th for George Washington Carver Recognition Day. All of that to say I was happy to be chosen to do another DVD review from the same company again this year.

This is the story of an exploration of the West. “From 1804 to 1806 Meriwether Lewis and William Clark led the Corps of Discovery on an 8,000 mile journey into the unknown. Starting at the meeting of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, they traveled by foot, boat, and horseback all the way to the Pacific Ocean and back”. This documentary “is complete with diary excerpts, encounters with Indians, the sometimes beautiful and sometimes threatening landscape, and a summary of the objectives and accomplishments of the journey of this extraordinary team. The beautiful photography, live re-enactments, illustrated maps and rare photographs make this historical adventure come to life and one that will entertain and educate all age groups for years to come”.
We have watched this DVD 3 times already. It goes great with our Lewis and Clark unit study we’re doing this school year. I usually ask my son questions at the end to see what he remembers and answer any questions he may have. We were surprised to hear how Sacagawea’s name was pronounced. My son loved learning about Lewis' dog but was said hearing how Lewis died. Did you know that Clark named one of his children after his friend Meriwether Lewis? Seeing the pictures as we listened to the narrator really brings this study alive. The visualization helps you feel like you were actually there during this time.
