Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "Lewis and Clark: American Explorers" by Barbara Radner.

"Lewis and Clark: American Explorers" explores the circumstances of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark's famous 1804 journey to chart the western United States.

"How has America changed over time?", "Why do people succeed?", and "What makes a hero?"
