    Great documentary to use with students

    I am a middle school Social Studies teacher, and I have found that this documentary works well with students. It has action-packed reenactments of the expedition, so it holds kids' attention better than some other documentaries. It helps students visualize the expedition and the West in general. It is also only 40-ish minutes long, so it fits well in a standard period.
