    I had my class become "real estate agents" trying to sell the Louisiana Territory. Each created a brochure about the area including wildlife, geographic features, etc. We created a large "For Sale" sign (poster) outside the classroom door which was hung from a(construction paper)post...very much like Century 21 or some other realestate agency. We painted the poster to depict the US and the Louisiana Territory. The kids had a blast! Their brochures were placed in a box hanging on the pole for their parents to read at Open House. I also used the book Lewis and Clark: A Prairie Dog for the President (a step into reading book by Shirley Raye Redmond) since I have a Special needs classroom in a Middle School.
