Social Studies Weekly Weeks 8-10 Study Guide Multiple Choice: Diplomatic minister- one who represents his own nation in working with other nations to promote good relations. Treaty- an agreement between two or more nations Expedition- a group sent with a special mission to perform Ste. Genevieve- Missouri’s first permanent settlement St. Louis- Missouri’s second oldest city whose first buildings were built by a fourteen year-old boy Era of Good Feelings- a time period when the United States was having success in many areas and people were happy. Louisiana Purchase- 375 million acres bought from France by the United States in 1803. Lewis and Clark – Two men Thomas Jefferson sent to explore the Louisiana Purchase James Monroe and Robert Livingston were sent to talk to Napoleon about buying the port of New Orleans and western Florida from France. Salt and Lead were two major resources mined in our state by the French people. The first settlers of Missouri came from France. The “Corps of Discovery” was the name given to Lewis and Clark as they explored the Louisiana Territory. Sacajawea was an interpreter of the American Indians who helped guide Lewis and Clark on their expedition. President Thomas Jefferson was concerned about who owned the Louisiana Territory because the French had been in control of the Port of New Orleans before and had closed it to Americans. Napoleon was anxious to sell the Louisiana Territory because -He had lost interest in trying to keep land in America -He was in great need of money -He wanted to revive a war with Great Britain Name______________Test Thursday, December 19th
The English built log cabins by laying the logs lengthwise on top of each other, while the French stood the logs up on their ends like posts. The French planted their crops in a large field owned by the entire village, while the English owned their own farms. One way Missourians reflect the early French way of life is that they enjoyed life and met together often to celebrate religious festivals, socialize, and dance. Constructed Response: What did Thomas Jefferson want Lewis and Clark to find and do while exploring the Louisiana Territory? - keep journals of their journey including pictures and descriptions of the flora and fauna in the area - find out about the Native Americans in the area -follow the Missouri River to its source -find a Northwest Passage to the Pacific Ocean Why was Lewis and Clark’s exploration of the Louisiana Territory so helpful? -Their journals, maps, and friendly contacts with the American Indians opened up the area to safe passage for future travelers and strengthened America’s claim on the western United States territory.
