Had a great outing today with my band students. We are lucky enough to have an IMAX theater in town and we took full advantage of the opportunity. In case you didn't know, IMAX has a whole library of educational movies, plus the lesson plans to go with them. This is a great resource, especially if you live in the Chicagoland area or near any large city.
It just so happens that there is a Lewis & Clark movie about the the great expedition that took place in 1804. This fit in nicely to our Lewis & Clark inter-disciplinary unit we are working on. It was a great opportunity for the students to finally see something after reading and hearing about the importance of the expedition.
