"Those studying Lewis and Clark with students grades 3 through 8, whether through a traditional textbook or other avenue, should check out Lewis & Clark Hands On as a supplement. It reinforces the historical information while adding map work, art, and composition activities. Since it is written by artist Sharon Jeffus, it's not surprising that the art activities dominate—to the extent that this could be your complete art course for the year."

"This wonderful book is an absolute must for any study of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The ideas for drawing are well laid out, clearly defined and illustrated beautifully. The writing is child friendly, accurate, interesting and spaced nicely throughout the book. We especially liked the variety of activities and simple, doable journaling suggestions packed in the 66 pages of this book. We became part of our subject and gained confidence in our drawing skills. I have collected many Hands On" books on this subject and this was by far the most useful and helpful of them all. Thank you for such a great product, it was worth every penny!"

—Tracy B, Customer Review from Rainbow Resource.

"As you can see, this book is a VERY thorough exposure to many academic subjects presented through a single historical event. If your child is a kinesthetic or artistic learner, this is a perfect way to experience many subjects in a very hands-on way. The book's writing requirements and drawing instructions are definitely geared for upper elementary aged students however with some creativity and flexibility you can pretty easily include younger siblings."
