Louisiana Purchase Education Program
Living Louisiana: Life in Louisiana in 1803: A Look at the Impact of the Louisiana Purchase.
HID has developed a multifaceted teaching unit focusing on the Louisiana Purchase and its historical impact on the great state of Louisiana. Our students live in a history and culture-rich state.
This project will help the students understand how and why their community developed. They will research the everyday lives of people of the late 1700′s/early 1800′s and explore the culture and heritage of their state. They will use their research to portray Shreveport-Bossier inhabitants and journalists of the era and culminate their experience with a class fair celebrating life during the Louisiana Purchase. Students will participate in fun, creative activities to further internalize information taught in core subjects. This unit is provided as supplemental material for teachers in order to enhance instruction and boost standardized test scores.
Look for it in your child’s school during the week of April 12-21st.
For more information on how to get the program in your school, call the HID office 865-5555 or email us at email@example.com.
