Students are greeted by Old Joseph, a bear representing the Nez Pierce tribe. He directs students to explore his world by visiting three timeline points in the world. For the first stopping point, Old Joseph explains that students will review the Lewis & Clark Expedition by way of visiting nine movie sets. Students will complete the movie sets using the information provided and write a script for each set that answers a daily question, as if they are the script writer for the movie about the trip. If time and technology allow, students can create videos using their script and their scenes and publish them for classmates and families to view.
