Lots of fun last week with Lewis and Clark. You got to practice finding assumptions and statements about nature. Let's try it again and take it a step further.
About 60 years after Lewis and Clark a teenage girl named Sarah crossed the plains with her family in a wagon train headed for Montana. She kept a diary.
- As you read keep looking for ASSUMPTIONS and evidence of NATURE.
- When you are done highlighting paste the URL in your English Journal.
- Then copy one of your assumptions into your EJ also.
- EXPLAIN why you think the part you copied is an assumption.
