Louisiana Purchase Lesson Plans

Yesterday's document from the National Archives' daily document feed was a copy of a proclamation to the people of New Orleans following the Louisiana Purchase. The proclamation was printed in three languages; English, French, and Spanish. The proclamation made me wonder what it would be like to wake up one morning and learn that where I lived was now a part of different country. What an odd feeling that must have been for some people. The proclamation also reminded me that last year I compiled a big list of lesson plan resources about Lewis and Clark. The lesson plans in that list cover every grade level from elementary school through college.
