Trade and Property is a unit consisting of five lessons and a culminating project.

The unit examines the property of both Lewis and Clark and the Chinook tribes through use of primary and secondary sources. Students will discover the nature of the trade relationship between these two groups. Students will apply their understanding of trade concepts as they design a product that offers advice to traders who will follow in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark.
